Riding after sedation--how long do you wait?

Friday morning my horse will be very lightly sedated for the equine dentist. He said he uses the minimal amount needed of a light sedative. How long do I need to wait afterwards before I can safel trail ride him?

I wait till the next day at least for any dental work. Its more that the mouth will be sore than the sedation wearing off.
The sedation should be gone after a 2-3 hours, the sore mouth could last a day or more.

I wait couple days at least to ride after the dental work. Even if I ride in hackamore I still give some time off.

My equine dentist always tells me to let them rest for 48 hrs of having any dental work done.
