Continue All Medications

Eat a full breakfast or lunch

Avoid pain meds before your diagnostic visit

Continue all medications

It is important to 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

Getting enough to eat prior to your procedure at Edwards Endodontics may help patients feel more comfortable during and after treatment. As it may be difficult to chew immediately after your visit it can be helpful if you do not have to eat for a time period.

When possible, avoid pain meds such as Ibuprophen before your first visit

If you take pain medication such as ibuprofen (Advil) or naproxen sodium (Aleve), or similar within 6 hrs. prior to your first diagnostic visit, it can make it more difficult to properly determine the extent of your needs. Please call us if you have any questions or concerns about this and we can work out a solution with you.

IMPORTANT: If you have been advised by your physician or dentist to use antibiotic premedication because of mitral valve prolapse (MVP), heart murmur, hip, knee, cardiac or other prosthesis, or if you have rheumatic heart disease, please make sure you are on the appropriate antibiotic on the day of your appointment. If there is a question, please call our office prior to your appointment.
