Pre- and Post-Surgical Instructions


Before Intravenous (IV) Sedation

You may not have anything to eat or drink for eight (8) hours prior to the appointment. This includes water, mints, gum, ice, etc.

Have an escort accompany you to the office. This person must remain in the office during the procedure. They are not allowed to leave the premises. Please arrange for this person to drive you home and stay with you for a minimum of four (4) hours after surgery.

You should not drive a vehicle or operate any machinery for 24 hours following the anesthetic procedure.

Please do not wear jewelry, contact lenses, dresses, one piece outfits, or make-up to your surgery appointment.

Wear comfortable clothing with a short sleeve shirt.

Please do not wear any colored nail polish.

If you have, or have had, any respiratory illness within the last couple of weeks, please notify the office prior to the day of your surgery.

Please review your pre-operative instructions the night before the procedure advising you what medications you are to take prior to the surgery.

After Dental Implant Placement

Unlike with extractions, do not put pressure over the implants with gauze for bleeding. You may place a thin layer of gauze over the area to absorb the bleeding. Usually bleeding is minimal after implant placement and does not require direct pressure to stop it.

Follow the instructions given to you after surgery in regards to wearing partials or dentures over your newly placed implants. Sometimes, Dr. Allard will prefer that you not wear anything over the implants during the first few weeks of healing.
