If you have been given an appointment for a root canal treatment, kindly observe the following guidelines to ensure your comfort:

+   Medication
     If medication has been prescribed, please take it as instructed.

+   Cancellations
     Kindly avoid last minute cancellations. Cancellations should be made at least 24 hours in advance so that your slot can be      allotted to someone else.

+   Food
     Do not come on an empty stomach. Have a good meal 2 hours before the procedure. Anesthesia given for the root canal      treatment may take about 2 – 3 hours to wear off. You may not be able to eat anything during this period.

+   Schedule
     Be mentally relaxed for the entire procedure. Set aside enough time in your schedule for the root canal treatment. Although most      root canals are completed in one and a half hours, keep yourself free for 2 hours. We are aware of how valuable your time is, but      we do not want to be pressurised to finish a procedure fast because the patient has to rush back to the office. You don’t have to      undergo a root canal everyday, so take it easy!

+   Punctuality
     Please come on time. Try to reach at least 10 minutes before the appointment. This will help you in getting familiarised with the      clinic and being relaxed. Traffic in Bangalore is relatively slow. Do start from home early so that you have lead time. If due to      unavoidable circumstances, you are unable to come on time for the appointment, please call the clinic and take a fresh      appointment. We believe in providing our patients with the best possible treatment and for that we require adequate time.

+   Smile
     It’s not as bad as you think.
