Before Endodontic Treatment
Preparing for a Root Canal
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: Lethbridge Centre Endodontics Phone Number 403-381-3663.
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: Lethbridge Centre Endodontics Phone Number 403-381-3663.
Please eat a full breakfast or lunch as applicable.
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 another 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: Lethbridge Centre Endodontics Phone Number 403-381-3663.
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 2-4 hours before endodontic therapy.
