Before your Surgery (Pre-Op) | Atlanta GA


  1. Put nothing in your mouth after midnight prior to your surgery, not even coffee, water, gum, mints or lifesavers.
  2. In the morning brush your teeth BUT DO NOT SWALLOW any paste, water, mouthwash, etc.
  3. Arrange for a responsible adult to take you home and stay with you for the first 24 hours after surgery.

Prepare for your at-home-recovery:

  1. Plan for adequate time away from work, school, or other daily responsibilities to give your body time to heal properly.
  2. Have ice or ice packs on hand.
  3. Have plenty of carbonated beverages, fruit juices, and water on hand. NO STRAWS!
  4. Have soft foods stocked: yogurt, cottage cheese, ice cream, soup, oatmeal, eggs, etc.

Don’t forget after midnight prior to your surgery…
