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 or school.

Continue all medications for blood pressure, diabetes, thyroid problems and any other conditions as recommended by your physician, unless otherwise advised. If there is a question, please call our office prior to your appointment.

Please eat a full breakfast or lunch as applicable.

If you have been advised by your physician or dentist to use antibiotic pre-medication due to a hip or knee replacement, cardiac or other prosthesis, or other reasons, please make sure that 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.

For our adult patients who can take ibuprofen (Advil) (200 mg per tablet) or naproxen sodium (Aleve) (220 mg per tablet) we recommend taking 2 tablets of either medication one hour prior to the procedure to help reduce the inflammation that may occur after the procedure.  If you are not able to take these medications, but are able to take acetaminophen (Tylenol), please take a total of 1000 mg (i.e. two, 500 mg tablets) one hour prior to the procedure.

If you have any questions, please call our office at Renton Office Phone Number 425-277-0670
