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. A doctor is available for consultation at all times should a problem arise after your treatment.

Continue all medications for blood pressure, diabetes, thyroid problems and any other conditions as recommended by your physician. 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 to use antibiotic premedication because of one of the following conditions: artificial heart valve(s), a history of infective endocarditis, a congenital heart condition, history of a cardiac transplant, hip, knee or other joint replacement, please be sure to inform Dr. Langan and his staff. If there is a question, please call our office prior to your appointment.

If you can take Ibuprofen (Advil) or Naproxen sodium (Aleve), it does help reduce inflammation when taken pre-operatively. We recommend 1-2 tablets of either medication 1-2 hours before endodontic therapy.

If you have any questions, please call our office at East Greenbush Office Phone Number 518-477-5155
