Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. After the doctor has addressed your specific concerns, a treatment plan will outline a solution that best fits your needs. All treatment rooms are equipped with state-of-the-art technology that allows you and the doctor to thoroughly discuss your case, providing you the utmost level of doctor/patient communication and attention.
Occasionally, root canal therapy can be done the same day as the consultation. It is common in our practice to see emergency patients who present with discomfort or infection. When emergencies occur, we are able to accommodate patients as soon as possible, usually on the same day. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and separate visits for treatment.
How do I prepare for root canal therapy?
This procedure will be performed using local anesthesia. Make sure to eat a full meal before your appointment. Continue all routine medications for blood pressure, diabetes, thyroid problems and any other conditions as recommended by your physician. If you have been advised by your physician or dentist to use antibiotic premedication due to hip, knee, cardiac or other prosthesis, please make sure you are on the appropriate antibiotic on the day of your appointment. During your treatment, you have the option of listening to music or watching a movie.
