Pre-Op and Post-Op Sedation Instructions

Before your childs oral sedation visit:

  • Please notify our office with any changes to your child's medical history
  • Please call us if your child has had a cough, cold, fever, congestion, or respiratory infection 4 weeks prior to the appointment
  • Patients can NOT eat or drink after midnight the night before their appointment
  • Wear loose fitting, comfortable cloting the day of treatment; No thick sweaters

After your childs oral sedation visit:

  • Your child will be sleepy following treatment, please go directly home and rest until your child has fully recovered from the medications
  • While your child may seem alert on discharge, this can be misleading.  Continue to monitor your child closely through out the day.  Limit activity (No sport, running, jumping etc.) as their balance will be impaired the day of treatment
  • Always hold your childs hand while walking
  • Your child may have liquids or soft foods that do not require chewing (Jell-O, popsicles).  At this time you can administer Tylenol or Motrin
  • Once anesthesia has worn off, your child can have a soft diet gradually progressing to a normal diet through out the day.  Fluid intake is more important than solid foods

Please contact us with any questions or concerns at (832) 930-7750
