Endodontic First Visit

Endodontic First Visit

Your first visit to an Endodontist lays the foundation for your future treatment. It will consist of a thorough review of your medical and dental history, as well as an evaluation of your symptoms. During your visit, your Endodontist may review existing x-rays or request additional x-rays and 3D imaging to make an accurate diagnosis. Based on your Endodontist’s findings, you will receive a treatment plan recommendation and be given the opportunity to ask questions about your diagnosis and treatment.

Before arrival…

In order to expedite your initial visit and streamline your office visit, you’ll need to come prepared with the following:

  • A referral from your general dentist or other specialists

  •  A copy of your dental insurance card

  • Personal information forms

  • Treatment release forms

  • A list of your current medications

  • X-rays or a signed release of x-rays from your dentist

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I see an Endodontist?

You should see an Endodontist if you require an apicoectomy or treatment for a root canal or broken tooth that is beyond the expertise of a general dentist. You’ll need a referral to see an Endodontist, so consult with your dentist about whether you should see an endodontic specialist.

What should I expect during my visit?

If you visit an Endodontist, you’ll be evaluated and diagnosed based on your symptoms and image results. You may also be subject to additional screenings and diagnostic testing beyond what you may have already had at your general dentist’s office. Although some of the equipment in your Endodontist’s office may look complicated, it is highly advanced technology that helps ensure your treatment is effective and precise.

What happens after my initial visit?

After you visit with your Endodontist for the first time, you will be scheduled to return for treatment. Depending on the extent of your treatment, you may be anesthetized and sedated to ensure you are comfortable for the duration of your procedure.
