The Day of Your Dental Sedation Procedure

Please arrive promptly for your appointment.

Do not bring children with you.

Make sure that you have followed any advice that you have been given by the team about eating and drinking before your appointment.

Bring with you a list of any medicines that you are currently taking. You should take your routine medicines on the day of the procedure. Please let us know if your medical history has changed since you last saw the dentist.

If you think you may be pregnant, you need to let the dentist know. You may need to come back to have your treatment at another time. You should let the dentist know if you are breastfeeding.

It is sensible to wear loose, comfortable clothing and flat shoes. You may need to remove any contact lenses so remember to take your glasses or a replacement pair of lenses for use once the treatment is finished.

The dentist will need to monitor you carefully while you are sedated. To help with this, please remove nail varnish and do not wear excessive make up or jewellery.

Do not bring valuables with you.

If you feel unwell on the day of the procedure, please telephone the number provided.

If you have been asked to arrange for someone to go home with you, it is essential that this person is available. If you do not have an escort, you will not be able to have your procedure under sedation.

After your treatment, you will be given a telephone number of who to contact if there are any problems.
