Before Endodontic Treatment

This procedure will be performed using local dental anesthetic injections (typically using  2% Lidocaine with 1:100,000 epinephrine, and/or other related and appropriate dental anesthetic medications). There usually are 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 pre-medication 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 or your physician prior to your dental appointment.

If you can take ibuprofen (Advil) or naproxen sodium (Aleve), it does help reduce inflammation when taken pre-operatively or immediately post-operatively.
