What to Expect

Pre-Operative Instructions

Pre-Operative Instructions

  1. Inform your physician of pending surgery and sedation as soon as possible so they can contact us about special instructions for stopping blood thinners and other medications.
  2. If you are doing oral sedation or IV sedation, please refer to the special instructions for sedation. Please read thoroughly and carefully.
  3. For your convenience, we give the prescriptions to your pharmacy in advance. Please take the pre-medication that was discussed at consultation appointment.
  4. No smoking or alcohol the day of the surgery. Please refrain from smoking for one week after the procedure. Smoking greatly hinders the healing process.
  5. Have an ice bag available at home. Also have soft foods available after the procedure. Examples include Ensure, applesauce, Jell-O, pudding, yogurt, scrambled eggs, pasta, and mashed potatoes.
  6. In order to keep the surgical environment sterile, please refrain from using cosmetics around your mouth on the day of surgery.
