Spanish Fork, UT
Before Endodontic Treatment
Having root canal treatment in Spanish Fork, UT, 84660? The best piece of advice before a root canal treatment at our Spanish Fork, UT office is to relax. Although endodontic treatment may seem scary, keep in mind that your procedure is not unlike having a cavity filled or a dental crown placed. During the process, you will be comfortable, under local anesthesia. You will experience no pain or discomfort. The only restriction post-treatment is driving or going back to work. Your endodontist will be reachable any time after root canal therapy if a problem arises.
If you are new to our practice, please plan to arrive at least 15 minutes early to complete any required paperwork and to review any potential insurance concerns.
Do not stop taking any prescribed medications unless instructed to do so by your doctor. Contact the office before your appointment to address any medical concerns.
Be sure to eat something before your appointment, regardless of the time.
Medications & Root Canal Treatment
If you have been directed to start on an antibiotic before undergoing dental procedures due to a medical condition such as prosthetic joints or heart valves, don’t forget to do so as instructed by your physician. Don’t hesitate to call the office if you have any questions.
Some patients require additional medications before and during the procedure to help ease dental anxiety. If you need this type of sedation, someone will have to transport you to and from your appointment. For more information, or if you have any questions call Maple Ridge Endodontics in Spanish Fork, UT, 84660 before your appointment.
