BEFORE YOUR FIRST VISIT
Be sure to eat a normal meal prior to your endodontic appointment, and please take any prescribed medications that you normally take daily (such as heart, diabetes, or thyroid medications, antibiotics, etc.). However, if this is your initial appointment with us and you have been taking any pain or anti-inflammatory medications for your tooth, please try to wait until after the evaluation appointment to begin your daily pain relief regimen. Such pain relievers can mask our test results and inhibit our ability to make an accurate diagnosis. If you have been given a specific antibiotic for your tooth issue, you may continue with this antibiotic regimen, since it is unlikely to problematic for your diagnosis.
