Need a root canal? Don’t be anxious. This informative video will walk you step-by-step through the procedure and explain how endodontists, the root canal specialists, can save your teeth..
Once your first set of x-rays are complete, we will evaluate your symptoms prior to testing the tooth in question along with adjacent teeth. After the tests are complete, a diagnosis will be given and your treatment options will be discussed. Usually, treatment can be done the same day as the consultation if scheduled in advance. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
If you decide to receive treatment, the procedure may start immediately. If the procedure is unable to be completed within one visit, medicine may be placed inside the tooth between appointments.
Once your procedure is complete, more X-rays are taken to track the success of the treatment. You will be provided with review sheets that include your post-operation instructions and what to expect over the next few days
Please do not take any pain medication prior to consultation appointments. (This includes Aspirin, Tylenol, Advil, etc.)
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- A list of medications you are presently taking
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to treatment
