Online Forms

Please note that prior to any consultation or treatment by our endodontic specialists we are required to have access to and review important patient information available. You can help make the initial visit shorter and more efficient by providing the following information at the time of your visit:

  • Your dentist’s referral note and/or any x-rays previously taken, if applicable. Please note that our medical staff may still decide to take new x-rays if it is deemed that they assist in a more comprehensive diagnosis.
  • A list of medications you are presently taking. Please alert our medical staff about any and all medical conditions that may be of concern prior to treatment (e.g., high blood pressure, artificial heart valves, diabetes, etc.) or if you are on any medication currently (e.g., heart medications, anticoagulant therapy, etc.)
  • If you have dental insurance, please bring your insurance information with you; this saves time and allows us to properly file the claim with your insurance.

Important: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian during an office consultation or treatment.

Post-Treatment Care Instructions

  1. Endodontic (Root Canal) therapy removes the sick tissue from inside the tooth and replaces it with filling inside the roots. The diseased tissue causes inflammation inside the tooth and irritation in the surrounding tissue areas. Once the cause of the irritation has been removed the tooth should start to heal. Although healing is not immediate you should start feeling better in one or two weeks. To understand the healing process, consider the familiar example of having a splinter in your finger. Once the splinter is removed, your finger feels better but the surrounding tissues still feel sore. This is similar to what an endodontic treatment will do – it removes the cause of the problem but the ligament and the bone that surrounds the root(s) are still bruised. This is the reason anti-inflammatories work so well, since they reduce the bruising surrounding the tooth. Sometimes the tooth does not become sore till the next day, so we recommend that you take anti-inflammatories immediately after endodontic treatment. This will prevent the production of pain mediators that will later cause you pain.
  2. It is normal to have some discomfort after endodontic treatment. We recommend that you take anti-inflammatories for at least 2-3 days after treatment.
  3. You will need to take anti-inflammatory three (3) times a day for five (5) days containing ibuprofen. (Unless you cannot take ibuprofen for medical reasons). This will help the tooth heal. If you still have some discomfort please contact our office so that we may prescribe some stronger medication.
  4. If you notice that the tooth we have worked on is ‘hitting’ a little higher than the other teeth, please contact our office so we may correct your occlusion (bite).
  5. If you experience unusual swelling, please contact our office so that we may prescribe antibiotics.
  6. If after 2 to 3 weeks you are still experiencing noticeable pain on the root canal-treated tooth, please contact our office.
  7. Please contact your general dentist for follow-up treatment. If needed your general dentist will place a filling and/or build-up and crown on the endodontically treated tooth. Remember to make sure that the treated tooth does not feel any discomfort, especially to chewing, before placing permanent crown.
