At Wausau Smiles, our dentist and team are highly trained and experienced in administering anesthesia during surgical procedures. We carefully monitor your status throughout your treatment to ensure that you remain safe and comfortable. While we do our best to ensure your safety, it is important that you review the instructions below to prepare for receiving anesthesia.

Prior to receiving anesthesia:

  • Do not drink or eat anything for at least 8 hours prior to your scheduled surgery time
  • Do not use tobacco products or smoke for at least 12 hours before your surgery time

When you come in for your scheduled surgery time, you will need to bring someone with you to drive you home once your treatment is complete.

On treatment day:

  • Wear comfortable clothing, with no jewelry, dentures, or contact lenses
  • Discuss any medications you take with Dr. Aaron Bushong prior to your surgery

If you have any questions about preparing for your surgical treatment, we invite you to contact our team at 715-842-3933. Our caring team and dentist in Wausau, Wisconsin, are here to help in any way.
