Before undergoing any root canal treatment with us, you will receive a full consultation from one of our team of Endodontistc specialists. At this consultation you have your treatment options carefully explained to you, and you will also be able to ask any questions you may have. Our team members will also then be able to advise you on any preparations you need to make prior to your root canal treatment in order to maximise the chances of treatment success.
If you are a nervous or anxious patient, it is a good idea to let our team know before your treatment, as we may be able to make special arrangements to make your treatment even more comfortable. This may include the administration of an anti-anxiety medication immediately before your treatment commences, or alternatively we can arrange for a specialist anaesthetist to attend and give intravenous sedation.
We often advise non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication to be taken prior to dental treatment, and will also administer similar medication immediately prior to treatment in order to reduce post-operative discomfort. We will only give antibiotics pre-treatment for specific medical problems where there is a risk of a spreading infection, or in the presence of bacteraemia.
