Before Endodontic Treatment
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 if possible.
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.
We ask that you please try to avoid taking any pain medications at least six hours prior to your initial examination visit. Pain medications such as ibuprofen (Advil), acetaminophen (Tylenol) or naproxen (Aleve) can mask your symptoms and affect your response to our diagnostic tests.
If you have any questions, please call our office at Salem Office Phone Number 503-585-3636
