Before Endodontic Treatment

To assist you in preparing for your appointment, please consider the following recommendations:

•     Eat regular meals before your appointment, unless having I.V. sedation.

•     Please ensure that you have your current dental insurance information before your appointment.

•     Pre-medicate with antibiotics, if you normally do, before dental appointments.

•     Unless instructed by your endodontist, do NOT take any pain medications prior to your appointment.

•     If you are given X-rays or have referral information from your general dentist, please bring these to your appointment.

•      Please contact our office for any questions about financing your treatment before your appointment.

This procedure will be performed using local anesthesia. There are usually no restrictions after the procedure concerning driving or returning to work. A doctor is available for consultation at all times should a problem arise after your treatment.

Continue all medications for blood pressure, diabetes, thyroid problems and any other conditions as recommended by your physician. If there is a question, please call our office prior to your appointment.

Please eat a full breakfast or lunch as applicable.

If you have been advised by your physician or dentist to use antibiotic premedication because of hip, knee, cardiac or other prosthesis, or if you have rheumatic heart disease, please make sure you are on the appropriate antibiotic on the day of your appointment. If there is a question, please call our office prior to your appointment.

Unless instructed by your endodontist, do NOT take any pain medications prior to your appointment.
