Pre-Operative Instructions

If you are undergoing sedation, please read and follow these important guidelines for before your oral surgery procedure.
  • You may not have anything to eat or drink (including water) for 6 hours before the appointment.
  • No smoking at least 12 hours before surgery. Ideally, cut down or stop smoking as soon as possible before the day of surgery.
  • A responsible adult must accompany the patient to the office 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 that can be rolled up past the elbow and low-heeled shoes.
  • Contact lenses, jewelry, and dentures must be removed at the time of surgery.
  • If you have an illness such as a cold, sore throat, or stomach or bowel upset, please notify the office.
  • Arrange for someone to care for your small children for the day of your surgery.
  • If you take routine oral medications, please check with Dr. Boyce or Dr. Tracy before your surgical date for instructions.
