IV Sedation Preparation Checklist

At Home

  • Do not eat or drink anything for at least 6 hours before your IV sedation/general anesthesia procedure (for morning surgery that means nothing past midnight). Failure to follow this instruction may be life threatening! If you need to take medications you can with a just small sip of water.
  • Use the restroom prior to your appointment.
  • Do not ignore a head or a chest cold when oral surgery is to be performed. Call immediately if any symptoms are present; a change of appointment may be necessary.
  • Please arrive wearing a loose short sleeve shirt.
  • Do not wear fingernail polish or acrylic fingernails.
  • Make arrangements for someone to stay with you at the office, throughout your procedure, and drive you home after. They will not be able to leave during your procedure. Uber, Lyft, and taxis are not appropriate rides home.
  • If you normally wear contacts, we ask you wear your glasses the day of the procedure.
  • Have someone at home to take care/watch you for the remainder of the day after surgery.
  • Do not drive or make important decisions within 24 hours after surgery.
