Questions & answers

Pre- & post-sedation dentistry

What should I do before receiving sedation?

Since each individual’s treatment is slightly different, our dentists will give you specific instructions pertaining to your procedure. Most patients are instructed to avoid eating many hours before the procedure so that the sedation can take full effect without fear of vomiting. Please let us know of any allergies or medical conditions you may have.

What should I do after receiving sedation?

We advise you to closely follow the instructions our dentists will have given you. Make sure someone is there to drive you to and from your procedure and that you have someone to monitor you for several hours after sedation. You should be able to resume regular activities the next day.

What types of sedation are available?

The types of sedation we include are:

  • Nitrous oxide (or laughing gas).
  • Oral sedation.
  • IV sedation.
  • General anesthesia.
  • Local anesthesia.

Pre- & post-sedation dentistry

Prior to your surgery

If you are receiving general anesthesia for your treatment, we ask that you follow specific instructions given to you by your dentists as closely as possible. However, here are some general instructions that you should always follow regardless:

  • Do not eat anything eight hours prior to your appointment.
  • You can still drink fluids beforehand, though they must be clear fluids like water, apple juice etc.
  • Do NOT drink opaque liquids like orange juice, milk, creamer, etc.
  • Do NOT consume alcohol or tobacco products within 24 hours of your procedure.
  • Do NOT drink any fluids within six hours of your procedure.

Do not take any of the following medications withing two days before your appointment:

  • MAO inhibitors
  • Antidepressants
  • Aspirin
  • Anticoagulants
  • Anti-inflammatories

You can take any of these medications with a small sip of water:

  • Cardiac medications
  • Pulmonary medications
  • Steroids
  • Anti-seizure medications
  • Anti-Parkinson’s medications
The day of your surgery

Before you come in for your procedure, please remember to:

  • Brush your teeth normally. Do not swallow any water.
  • Do not wear nail polish or makeup.
  • Do not wear jewelry, dentures or contact lenses.
  • Wear comfortable clothing with flat-soled shoes.

Minors must always have a parent or legal guardian present with them during the entirety of their treatment. If you are an adult, you must have someone available to drive you to and from your procedure and stay with you for at least 12 hours to monitor you. Do not drive or operate machinery or hazardous devices while you are still under the effects. You may need help attempting difficult tasks and climbing stairs.

If there are any changes in your health on the day of your appointment, please let us know immediately. We will reschedule your treatment if needed. We invite you to contact us for any questions you have about our pre- and post-sedation instructions.
