Do not have anything to eat or drink for 8 hours prior to your scheduled surgery.
Please have someone present with you to provide safe transportation following your scheduled surgery. For your own safety, you cannot drive yourself home or take public transportation without an escort.
Unless your doctor informs you otherwise, take your usual prescription medications on your day of surgery with small sips of water.
Make arrangements to have someone with you following your surgery. Many of the sedative effects from general anesthesia will continue for the remainder of the day. Having someone you trust nearby to assist you will ensure that you will have a safe and comfortable recovery.
THE FOLLOWING ITEMS WILL BE USEFUL DURING THE RECOVERY PROCESS:
- Ice packs
- Soft, non-chew foods
- Ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) or Acetaminophen (Tylenol)
Please contact our staff directly if you have any questions regarding your surgical care. Thank you for choosing Berks Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center for your surgical care.
