What Are The Essential Preparation Tips For Corrective Jaw Surgery?Jaw surgery, also known as orthognathic surgery, can help patients with misaligned jaws to improve their sleeping, breathing, and speaking capabilities. It also allows them to chew and bite their food with ease. However, before undergoing surgery, it is important to take into account some of the following tips to ensure that the procedure and the recovery process go smoothly.

Get Enough Rest

You must make sure that you plan your rest days before surgery. During this time, you can look for books to read or have a movie list to help you feel relaxed. Your friends and family members should also know and understand that you are resting and avoid disturbing you. Getting enough rest will not only put you in a healthy mental state before the operation, but it will also ease the first days of the recovery process.

Preparation of Your Meals Before Time

After your jaw surgery, cooking may become tiresome, and you may also feel exhausted. As such, we highly recommend that you prepare your meals prior to the surgery. You should ensure these foods are soft and nutritious. The types of food you should be eating after jaw surgery include smoothies, soups, and blended fruits.

Staying Hydrated

Staying hydrated is essential before and after your surgery. It will assist in the healing process and rejuvenate your body organs. If it helps, you can keep a schedule that keeps you in check with your mealtime and water intake. Your recovery schedule also requires elements such as walks and family time.

The highlighted tips are helpful in assisting you to prepare for your corrective jaw surgery. They also come in handy in the recovery period.
