Before Your Root Canal

  • Please eat a full breakfast or lunch.
  • If you have been advised by your physician or dentist to use antibiotic premedication prior to dental treatment, please make sure you take this as advised. If there is a question, please call our office prior to your appointment.
  • Taking ibuprofen (Advil) prior to your root canal treatment helps reduce post-operative inflammation and pain. Please follow the directions on the bottle. Please do not take if your physician has advised against taking ibuprofen.
  • If we have made arrangements with you to take a sedative medication prior to your appointment, an escort will be required to take you home.
