Patient Information

Consultation

Your initial appointment will consist of the collection of a complete medical history, insurance and a detailed consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options.
Occasionally, conditions allow surgery to be performed the same day as the consultation. However, in most cases, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and additional preparation for a second appointment to provide treatment.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
  1. Any applicable X-rays provided by your dentist or physician.
  2. A list of medications you are presently taking.
  3. If you have medical or dental insurance, please bring your insurance card and any necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18 years of age to the consultation and surgical appointments.
A pre-operative consultation is mandatory for patients undergoing intravenous anesthesia for surgery. Please have nothing to eat or drink six hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult to drive you home.
Please alert our office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e. pregnancy, diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are on any medication (i.e. heart medications, insulin, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.)
Please arrive 15 minutes early for your appointment so that you have time to fill out your patient information, and we can begin your appointment on time.

Financial Policy

For your convenience, we accept cash, checks, Visa, and MasterCard. We also participate with CareCredit, Delta Dental, CHIP and Medicaid. Dr. Kyle T. Hunt also accepts Medicare. If you have insurance, you are required to pay your co-pay on the day of surgery. Due to the high cost of billing, it is necessary that all accounts be paid in full at the time services are rendered unless prior arrangements have been made. There will be a 1.0% monthly finance charge, and collection costs will be added to any balance over 90 days.
Please remember you are fully responsible for all fees charged by this office regardless of your insurance coverage.
We will send you a monthly statement regarding your account. Insurance companies will usually respond within four to six weeks. Any balance not paid by your insurance company is your responsibility. We appreciate your prompt payment.

Insurance

At Central Mississippi Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, our office will file your insurance as a courtesy to you, our patient. However, your insurance policy is a contract between you and your insurance company. Estimates given as to what will be paid by the insurance or claims that are denied by the insurance are your responsibility. The balance of the account is due 90 days from the due date of service.

Privacy Policy

We understand that your medical information is personal, and we are committed to protecting that information. We comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1966 (HIPPA).

Instructions to Patient Following Oral Surgery

  1. Bite firmly on gauze pack for 45 minutes, then discard. Place a new gauze pack over extraction site and bite firmly for 45 more minutes.
  2. Do not smoke or spit for at least four hours. The sucking action necessary for both can cause continued bleeding.
  3. Do not rinse your mouth today. Water swirled in the mouth can wash the clot out of the extraction site. The following day, start warm saltwater rinses.
  4. Food: After 4 hours, you may eat or drink. Soft foods and cool non-carbonated beverages are recommended for the first day. Avoid alcohol for 2 hours.
  5. Pain: It is not unusual to experience some pain as the anesthesia wears off. For this reason, it is recommended you take one of the pain tablets prescribed for you one hour after surgery. Do not take another tablet until you experience pain again. If this medication causes dizziness or nausea, discontinue its use. Do not operate machinery or drive an automobile while you are taking this medication.
  6. Bleeding: Following oral surgery, some bleeding is to be expected. Even if you follow the gauze biting instructions mentioned above, you can expect your saliva to be red-tinted for 10 to 12 hours. Excessive bleeding is characterized by rubbery clots in your mouth. If this is the case, do not get alarmed but try the following:
  1. Rinse the mouth with cold water.
  2. Wipe away any blood clots not in the socket with a clean gauze.
  3. Bite firmly on a piece of gauze folded and placed directly over the socket for 30 minutes. If you are out of gauze, you can substitute it with a clean tea bag.
  4. Repeat all of the above, if necessary.
  1. Swelling: It is to be expected and usually is most severe after two days. If, however, the swelling continues to enlarge after this time, contact our office. Swelling will often persist for a week and is not necessarily a sign of infection.
  2. Skin Discoloration: It is not unusual in case of difficult extractions for the skin of the face or neck to turn black and blue. This will gradually disappear and is no cause for alarm.
  3. Ice: Immediately following surgery, the application of ice can be helpful in preventing swelling. Place an ice pack on the face over the surgery area for approximately 20 minutes and then take it off for 20 minutes. Repeat this up to five times, then discontinue the use of ice therapy.
  4. Heat: Beginning the first day after surgery, the use of heat can be comforting and can aid in decreasing the swelling. A heating pad or hot soaks to the face, off and on, is recommended.
  5. A woman taking birth control pills should take additional birth control precautions for the remainder of their present menstrual cycle if she is taking antibiotics or pain medicines, or if she received intravenous sedation.

If you have any problems or questions, please call the office at (601) 981-3111.
If you have been sedated, someone must be with you at home for the remainder of the day.
