Oral Surgery Instructions for Intravenous Sedation or General Anesthesia

  • Do not eat or drink anything 6 hours prior to your appointment (except a sip of water to take necessary medications).
  • Your driver should be present at all times during your surgery. You must not operate any vehicle or device until you are completely recovered from the anesthesia. This may take 24 hours.
  • If you are currently taking ANY medication(s), please inform the oral surgeon BEFORE your scheduled surgery date.
  • Clothing Requirements: wear comfortable clothes; short sleeves and flat shoes are preferable.
