Preparing for Surgery

Your wisdom tooth surgery will be done in our office. You may be required to take time off from work or school to recover. We will be sure to schedule a follow up appointment with you so that we can monitor your progress and make sure that you are healing properly.


Don't eat or drink anything at least six hours before your surgery if general anesthesia or intravenous sedation is expected to be used.


Arrange to have a responsible person come with you the day of the surgery to assist you in getting you home safely. You may still be groggy from the anesthesia.


Wear loose comfortable clothes. Choose a shirt or blouse with short sleeves.
