Before Anesthesia

Before Anesthesia

Many people associate the dentist with pain but that is simply not painting the full picture. Although some procedures do cause discomfort, tenderness, and soreness, that often comes during the recovery period.

When we conduct oral surgery, we use anesthetics to numb the treatment area and ensure our patients do not endure pain. To guarantee that your next procedure goes smoothly, here are some things to keep in mind before intravenous anesthesia:

What you need to know about undergoing anesthesia before your dental surgery in 75075.
  • You may not have anything to eat or drink (including water) for six (6) hours prior to the appointment. If you are a diabetic, we may modify these instructions- please consult with the doctors and staff.
  • No smoking at least 12 hours before surgery. Ideally, cut down or stop smoking as soon as possible prior to the day of surgery.
  • A responsible adult must accompany the patient to the office, remain in the office during the procedure, and drive the patient home.
  • The patient should not drive a vehicle or operate any machinery for 24 hours following the anesthesia experience.
  • Please wear loose fitting clothing with sleeves which can be rolled up past the elbow, and low-heeled shoes.
  • Contact lenses, jewelry, and dentures must be removed at the time of surgery.
  • Do not wear lipstick, excessive makeup, or nail polish on the day of surgery.
  • If you have an illness such as a cold, sore throat, stomach or bowel upset, please notify the office.
  • If you take routine oral medications, please check with Dr. Stewart or Dr. Michael prior to your surgical date for instructions.
