If you are scheduled to receive an endodontic treatment, then Dr. Balasco recommends the following before your appointment:

  • Please let us know if you are taking prescription medication, and please continue to take all of your medications as usual before your treatment.
  • If your physician has advised you to use antibiotic premedication before dental procedures as a result of mitral valve prolapse (MVP), heart murmur, or prosthetic joints please be sure to take the appropriate antibiotic one hour before your visit.
  • We suggest that you take 2-3 tablets (400-600mg) of ibuprofen before your visit to help increase your comfort during treatment. Please do not take this medication if you cannot take Aspirin and/or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications.

Please call our team today if you want to learn more about the steps you should take before coming to our office for treatment. We are always happy to help you out.
