Getting your filling or crown should be a pain free and atraumatic experience. Try to eat prior to your appointment, since you will be numb for a few hours following treatment, making eating and drinking after the appointment difficult. When you come to our office remember to bring a list of any new medications you are taking and information on any recent hospitalizations or health changes. If your doctor or surgeon has requested that you take an antibiotic premedication, remember to take the medication 1 hour prior to your appointment. Unless you will be taking an oral sedative, you will be able to drive and return to work after your treatment is complete.
