Before Endodontic Treatment
Tooth pain is the main reason for patients seeking endodontic treatment. Fortunately, modern anesthetics can make the procedure painless in most cases. Seeking treatment early can often make the procedure more comfortable. When caught early, treatment should feel no different than having a regular filling.
This procedure will be performed using local anesthesia. There are usually no restrictions after the procedure in terms of 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 mitral valve prolapse (MVP), heart murmur, 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.
