Before Endodontic Treatment

Your comfort is our number one priority.  Dr. Shipp has treated thousands of patients that report how comfortable they were throughout the  procedure.

Your root canal procedure will be performed using local anesthesia. There are usually no restrictions after the procedure concerning driving or returning to work. A doctor is 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 a full breakfast or lunch as applicable.

If you can take ibuprofen (Advil) or naproxen sodium (Aleve), it does help reduce inflammation when taken pre-operatively. You can take this medication 2 hrs prior to your appointment. 

If you have any questions, please call our office at Henderson Office Phone Number 702-798-0911
