WISDOM TEETH PRE-OP INSTRUCTIONS
Is there anything special I need to do before the surgery? It all depends how you are doing it. If your procedure is done under IV sedation the most important thing is to arrive on an empty stomach (nothing to eat or drink after midnight the day before) and the patient needs to be accompanied by an adult. If you are doing the procedure under local anesthetic, you can go about your day as normal. If the patient is taking any HBP medication, we advise the patient to take the medication with a sip of water. But we always call the day before to go over all the important information.
