Before Endodontic Treatment

This procedure will be performed using local anesthesia. There are usually no restrictions before and/or after the procedure concerning driving, daily activities or returning to work. 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.

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. Please inform our staff of any existing medical conditions prior to the beginning of any procedure. If you have any questions, please call our office prior to your appointment.

Important: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit. Please alert the office if you have a medical condition or are taking any medications, which may have an effect on your endodontic treatment.
