Medications Prior to Treatment
Medications such as Aspirin, Coumadin, Plavix, or some blood thinners many need to be stopped prior to surgery, please consult with your physician to determine if you need to modify your medications before your scheduled surgery date.
If you take antibiotic pre-medication, please take it as directed before your surgery. We do not recommend that you do not eat prior to surgery.
Our Periodontists may prescribe an antibiotic if it is necessary for your procedures. Antibiotics should be taken as directed without missing a dose and until completely gone. If you are currently taking birth control pills, it is possible that antibiotics may interfere with their function. Please consult your physician.
If you elect to use oral sedatives you must have someone drive you to and from the clinic.
