Post Treatment Care

Root Canal Post Treatment Care

The following are important notes for dental patients who have had any work done on their teeth.

  • Do not eat anything, and do not drink anything hot, until numbness wears off. This will prevent you from biting your cheek or tongue or burning your mouth.
  • Avoid chewing at that tooth until it is completely restored by your dentist.
  • Be sure to floss and brush normally.
  • If the opening in your tooth was restored with a temporary filling material, it is not unusual for a thin layer to wear off in-between appointments. However, if you think the entire filling has come out, contact us.

Contact us right away if you develop any of the following:

  • A visible swelling inside or outside of your mouth
  • An allergic reaction to medication, including rash, hives or itching (nausea is not an allergic reaction)
  • A return of original symptoms
  • Your bite feels uneven.
