Before Endo Treatment Instructions

Pre-Treatment Instructions

We’re grateful you’ve chosen to book your treatment with us. Follow our guide for a smooth experience.


Please continue taking all normally prescribed medications for blood pressure, thyroid problems, and any other medical conditions, unless we tell you otherwise. If you have a question or concern about a specific medication, please contact our office prior to your appointment. You can also ask us during your consultation.

If your doctor or other healthcare provider has recommended you take an antibiotic before your procedure (for instance, due to mitral valve prolapse, heart murmur, rheumatic heart disease, or prosthesis), please make sure you are on the correct antibiotic on the day of your treatment.

To reduce inflammation, we recommend taking ibuprofen (Advil) or acetaminophen (Tylenol) prior to your treatment, if you are able. We recommend 3 tablets of Advil or 2 tablets of Tylenol. If you don’t have medication at home, we will give it to you in our office before your treatment. We want you to be as comfortable as possible!

NOTE: Alcohol intake is not advised while taking any of these medications.

Food and Water

We recommend that you eat a full breakfast or lunch before your appointment. You can also drink hydrating liquids, as usual. We want to make sure you’re comfortable!


You might be wondering if you need a ride from our office. But since we perform procedures using local anesthesia, most patients don’t experience problems with driving or returning to work following treatment. You can expect to experience numbness for a few hours post-treatment, but that won’t impact your ability to drive.
