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. Dr. Piepenbring and Dr. Whitten are 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 as you would normally before your appointment.
If you have been advised by your physician or dentist to use antibiotic premedication because of joint prosthesis, artificial heart valves, rheumatic heart disease, or for other medical concerns please make sure you are on the appropriate antibiotic on the day of your appointment. 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 2 tablets of either medication 2-4 hours before endodontic therapy.
If you have any questions, please call our office at Georgetown Office Phone Number 843-546-0173 (Georgetown) or 843-357-9845(Murrells Inlet).
