Your First Visit

Your inital visit will include an examination to gather information and perform tests to diagnose the problem and plan for the appropriate treatment. Then, our staff will discuss treatment options with you. In some cases, treatment  will begin immediately following the examination and in other cases we will schedule you back for treatment, which can often be completed in one treatment session. This schedule may be adjusted based on your preference.  Multiple appointments may be needed if you have an infection, complex treatment needs, or if you need endodontic surgery.

General Instructions

Dietary Restrictions

Since your treatment will be completed using local anesthesia, there are no restrictions related to food or liquids prior to your visit, unless sedation is being provided.  Eat normally and take all medications as prescribed by your physician without altering your normal routine.

Activity Restrictions

Our goal is to get you back to your normal daily routines ASAP! After traditional root canal therapy, most patients return to their normal activities right away. In rare instances, such as severe infection, it may take a couple of days to feel back to normal, but rest assured, the treatment we provide will be the fastest and most effective way to get you back to your daily routine.

Dental Hygiene

Good oral hygiene speeds recovery and improves healing results.  Please brush and floss thoroughly immediately before your visit and maintain good hygiene thereafter.


All patients under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.


If you require antibiotic premedication prior to dental treatment due to artificial joints, heart defects, or another medical condition, please ensure you have the necessary prescription and take as prescribed before your appointment.
