6. Do I need a doctor/dentist referral to book a consultation?

Your initial appointment will usually consist of a consultation regarding the specific referral request made by your dentist/medical doctor.

However, you also have the option to visit us as a self-referral.

We will then provide you with a diagnosis and treatment options based on the specific treatment required for you.

Consultations take place on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, while surgeries take place on Wednesdays.

7. Do you accept health insurance?

Yes, our office accepts most insurance plans to help you cover the cost of your operation.

8. Do you offer flexible billing options?

At the Central Alberta Maxillofacial Center, all payment is due in full prior to your procedure.

You have the option to pay out of pocket, through your insurance provider, or a combination of both.

We understand that it can be difficult to make the financial arrangements necessary for your procedure. This is why we make our consultations valid for an entire year, giving you the opportunity to have a few months to save up the necessary funds to cover the cost of the services you require.

9. What can I eat after my procedure?

In general, it is recommended to only consume soft foods in the days following your procedure. Also, be sure to consume an adequate amount of fluids, as this is an important part of the healing process.

Some things you should avoid after your procedure are:

Smoking/Vaping: smoke is a tissue irritant and can lead to infection, delayed healing, and dry sockets. Avoid engaging in this behavior for at least 2-4 week post operation.

Alcohol: delays the healing process

Hot Liquids: to avoid burns, do not consume hot liquids for at least four to five hours after your procedure, or until the freezing is gone.

Hard/Crunchy Foods: may become lodged in incisions. These are not a good idea to consume for the first 3-4 weeks post operation.

10. What is the expected wait time for a procedure?

This depends on the service you require, and the severity of your condition. For example, you can expect to get an operation date for wisdom teeth removal that falls in the approximate 4-6 week range.

To get an estimated procedure date, please contact our office.
