Your appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Most usually treatment can be done the same day as the consultation.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
The fee for your endodontic treatment will be based on the extent of treatment. During your first visit we will discuss the probable number of visits, their length, and the fees involved. Endodontic fees usually range from $800 to $1,400 and it is our policy that your care is paid for at the time of treatment.
Please eat a full breakfast if your appointment is in the morning. 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.
Also, if you have been advised by your physician or dentist to use antibiotic pre-medication because of mitral valve prolapse (MVP), heart murmur, hip, knee or cardiac prosthesis, or rheumatic heart disease, please call our office for instructions before the day of your scheduled visit. Please bring with you a list of all medications you are taking. At each visit to our office, report any changes in your health status.
After completion of endodontic treatment, the root canal system has been permanently sealed. However, the outer surface, or crown, is sealed with a temporary restoration. The permanent restoration must be replaced by your general dentist to protect your tooth against fracture and decay. Please telephone your restorative dentist for an appointment within eight weeks from completion of root canal treatment. A complete report of treatment will be sent to your doctor. In addition, our Doctors will follow-up with a personal phone call to you to determine your progress.
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. Please call the Clinton office at (601) 924-3003
