Here are Samaritan Dental’s top 3 tips and advice for scheduling root canal treatment before we take a look at the top 3 tips for getting a tooth extraction.
Three Top Tips For Root Canal Treatment
- Please schedule your appointment for as early in the morning as possible (pre 10 am) to give your dentist the time they need to complete the root canal and crown impression.
- Make sure any pre-dental work, infection or swelling subside completely with antibiotics before travelling to Tijuana. (If you arrive with any infection, your dentist may be able to start the root canal treatment but may need to send you home until the infected area heals. You would then incur an additional trip to Tijuana to complete the treatment.

Three Top Tips for Getting Extractions
- Avoid taking aspirin or any other blood thinners for the three days before your extractions.
- You will be on a soft diet for a few days after the procedure, so make sure you feast before it.
- Follow all pre-operative instructions given to you previously by the dental specialist. (It wouldn’t be the first time we have had to postpone surgery as patients thought a light breakfast or a coffee would be ok in the morning of the procedure, but our dentists cannot and will not sedate anyone for extraction surgery for example, if they haven’t followed the advice and fasted for 8-10 hours prior to the treatment.)
