Pre-Operative Sedation Instructions for Adults

You must have an empty stomach.  Do not eat anything 8 hours prior to the start of your appointment. You may drink clear fluids such as water, clear juices without pulp, Gatorade and ginger ale up to 2 hours before the start of treatment.  Alcohol is not permitted.

You should take any of your regularly prescribed drugs according to your normal routine, unless otherwise advised by me.  Do not take any herbal supplements the day of your treatment, especially kava, Ginko or St. John’s wort and avoid grapefruit juice the day before and the day of your appointment.

Heavy eye makeup, including mascara and eye shadow, must not be worn, or may have to be removed prior to treatment as it may make your eyes more prone to discomfort.  Nail polish must also be removed in order to ensure accurate oxygen monitoring.

Please wear a loose, short-sleeved garment to your appointment so that we can place a blood pressure cuff properly on your arm and easily access a vein on your forearm.

Tell us before your appointment if you have had any changes in your general health, especially in ease of breathing, pregnancy, or a decrease in exercise tolerance.  Also, please speak to me if you are concerned about any part of your treatment or being asleep; I’m here to help!

If you're making a payment the day of your appointment or need to meet with your treatment coordinator, please arrange to do this before treatment. We'll arrange your appointment to provide time for these matters before you receive any kind of medication.

Arrange in advance for a responsible adult to take you home after your Dentistry Asleep ® appointment.

We will provide you with detailed written instructions at your consultation appointment.
