Before Endodontic Treatment

This procedure will be performed using local anaesthesia. 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 prior to your appointment.

Please advise us if you have a history of needing antibiotics prior to cleanings or dental treatment. Most people do not require antibiotic premedication, but there are a few heart conditions that warrant such a precaution. If you are unsure, please call our office prior to your appointment.

If you can take ibuprofen (Advil) or naproxen sodium (Aleve), it does help reduce inflammation when taken pre-operatively. We recommend 2 tablets of either medication 2 to 4 hours before your treatment appointment.

If you have any questions, please call our office:   604.371.4505
