Before Endodontic Treatment


Local anesthesia will be used for all endodontic procedures. After the procedure is complete, there are usually no restrictions driving or returning to work/school unless other methods of sedation are used. Should a problem arise post treatment the doctor will be available for consultation.

Before treatment consider the following:

  • Continue all medications as recommended by your physician. Please contact our office if there is any questions prior to your appointment.
  • Please eat as applicable as appointments can be long.
  • If you have been advised by your physician or dentist to use prophylactic antibiotics because of hip, knee, cardiac or other prosthesis, or any other medical condition that requiring prophylactic antibiotics, please make sure you take the appropriate antibiotic the day of your appointment. Please contact our office if there is any questions prior to your appointment.
  • All children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. If the child is being accompanied by any other adult a written letter giving us consent to treat the patient must be signed by a parent or guardian.
  • All necessary paperwork can be found online, filled out at your convenience and brought in at the time of your appointment.
