Before Endodontic Treatment


There are usually no restrictions after the procedure concerning driving or returning to work for a typical non-surgical root canal treatment. All procedures will be performed using local anesthesia, just like having a filling. The front desk coordinator is available for a phone consultation before or after your treatment. They are properly trained to advise patients on what may or may not be normal post-operative symptoms. Dr. Simpson has given them the tools to answer questions as he would.

If you are taking Halcion prior to your dental appointment or having IV sedation done at our office, you will need a driver and will not be able to return to work the day of the procedure. This would be discussed at an evaluation appointment before any medication or IV is administered. 

If you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant, please advise us when you schedule your appointment. It would be helpful if when you call you have your OBGYNs fax number so that we may fax an approval for root canal treatment form to your doctor. We will need to have approval from your OBGYN prior to treatment at our practice.

Continue all medications for blood pressure, diabetes, blood thinners, thyroid problems, and any other conditions as recommended by your physician. If there is a question, please call our office prior to your appointment.

If you have been advised by your physician or dentist to use antibiotic premedication for a joint replacement, please make sure you are on the appropriate antibiotic on the day of your appointment.

If you are not a patient of record at our office, we can not call in any medications for you prior to being seen in person by an Endodontist at our practice.

If you have any questions, please call our office at Columbus Office Phone Number 614-488-3333
