A Closer Look at Your First Appointment with Yanich Oral Surgery

During your first appointment with Yanich Oral Surgery, Dr. Yanich will review your health history and current medications to see if there are any risks associated with the surgery. He’ll then explain what procedure(s) would need to be done based on x-rays and a referral from your dentist.

At your consultation, Dr. Yanich will review your anesthesia/sedation options and the risks associated with any surgery involved in your specific case. Our front office staff will then prepare a treatment plan for you that outlines all planned procedures and provides a total cost estimate.

To provide you with the best possible experience, please gather the following information before your consultation:

  • Referral slip from your dentist.
  • Recent x-rays (your dentist can forward these directly to our office upon request).
  • Information for all medical and dental insurance programs you’re enrolled in.
  • A comprehensive list of all drugs you’re presently taking and any known allergies to drugs or latex.
  • A completely filled-out “Welcome To Our Practice” form, which is available both online and in print. You can click here to access it before your visit, or we will mail it to you beforehand.

Take note that a parent or legal guardian must accompany all patients under 18.

Managing Dental Emergencies Before Your Appointment With Us

Here are a few tips for managing any dental emergencies before your appointment with Yanich Oral Surgery:
Abscessed tooth

Rinse your mouth with warm salt water to help reduce swelling and kill bacteria. You can also take over-the-counter pain medication like ibuprofen to help manage the pain.


Try flossing and brushing your teeth to remove any food particles that may be causing the pain. You can also apply a cold compress to the outside of your cheek to help reduce swelling and numb the area.

Chipped or broken teeth

Avoid chewing on that side of your mouth and rinse your mouth with warm water. You can also use dental wax to cover the sharp edges of the broken tooth.

Loose Tooth

Avoid playing with it or wiggling it around. Rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to the outside of your cheek to help reduce swelling.
