USEFUL INFORMATION

How long does it take?
Most endodontic procedures can be completed in one visit. The typical appointment lasts between 45 to 75 minutes. Due to the complex nature of some procedures, it is sometimes necessary to schedule a second visit for the same tooth. Retreatment and endodontic surgical procedures require a consultation visit before treatment is scheduled.

 

Antibiotic pre-medication:
Certain medical conditions (artificial heart valve or artificial joint patients) require that some dental procedures be performed with antibiotics taken beforehand. Please let our appointment coordinator know if you normally require antibiotics before dental procedures.

 

Minor patients:

Patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian who can provide consent for your procedure.



 

Pain management:
We are committed to making your experience in our office a pleasant one. Most procedures can be performed comfortably under local anesthesia. We do offer nitrous oxide ("laughing gas") analgesia and oral sedative medications by prior arrangement. Please let our appointment scheduler know that you are interested in one of these options. Post-operative pain is managed by over the counter pain (analgesic) medication and sometimes by prescription analgesic medication. Antibiotics are prescribed when signs and symptoms of an infection are present.

 

Driver/Escort requirement:
Our office is concerned about the safety of our patients. Procedures performed under local anesthesia and those patients using nitrous oxide analgesia do not require a driver. A driver/escort will be necessary if an oral sedative medication such as Valium or Halcion is prescribed before the procedure.

 

Returning to work:
The majority of patients can return to work after most endodontic procedures are completed. Surgical patients (with an incision and/or sutures) are advised to rest at home after surgery and return to work the next day.
