For procedure involving local anaesthetics and oral sedation you will be advised not to operate any machinery for at least 24/36 hours afterwards.

General anaesthesia – General anaesthetics are mainly, but not exclusively used for complex cases such as where bone is being grafted from the hip to the mouth, or where large numbers of implants are being placed at the same time. You will be asked not to eat or drink for at least six hours prior to the surgery and you will need to arrange for an adult to take you to your hotel.
Most patients will not require a general anaesthetic since conscious sedation is very much safer and has fewer post-operative complications.
