AFTER TREATMENT CARE


  • PLEASE SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT WITH YOUR GENERAL DENTIST WITHIN 2 WEEKS FROM THE COMPLETION OF YOUR ROOT CANAL  TO HAVE A FINAL RESTORATION PLACED

     
    • CURRENTLY YOU HAVE A TEMPORARY FILLING IN YOUR TOOTH THAT NEEDS TO BE REPLACED WITH A  PERMANENT FILLING
    • HAVING THE TOOTH RESTORED IN A TIMELY MANNER WILL EXTEND THE SUCCESS OF THE ROOT CANAL TREATMENT BY PREVENTING BACTERIAL LEAKAGE AND FRACTURE OF THE TOOTH
    •  FAILURE TO PLACE THE FINAL RESTORATION IS THE LEADING CAUSE OF TOOTH LOSS AFTER ROOT CANAL TREATMENT


 

  • PLEASE BE AWARE THAT AFTER ROOT CANAL TREATMENT, THE TOOTH MAY BE SENSITIVE TO BITING AND THE GUMS MAY BE SORE. 
  • WE ADVISE TAKING 600MG OF IBUPROFEN, MOTRIN, OR ADVIL EVERY 6 HOURS AS NEEDED TO ALLEVIATE ANY SYMPTOMS (DO NOT TAKE MORE THAN 16 PILLS PER DAY)
     
    • IF YOU HAVE AN ALLERGY OR A MEDICAL CONDITION IN WHICH YOU CANNOT TAKE IBUPROFEN, MOTRIN, OR ADVIL, WE ADVISE YOU TAKE 2 EXTRA STRENGTH TYLENOLS EVERY   4-6 HOURS AS NEEDED FOR PAIN (DO NOT TAKE MORE THAN 8 PILLS PER DAY)

 

  • WE RECOMMEND NOT EATING UNTIL THE NUMBNESS WEARS OFF AFTER THE PROCEDURE
  • ICE THE AREA FOR 24 HRS (20 MINS ON/20 MINS OFF)
  • IN CERTAIN CASES, WE MAY ADVISE WARM SALT WATER RINSES
  • IF YOU NOTICE ANY SWELLING (INTRA/EXTRA ORAL), PLEASE CONTACT THE OFFICE IMMEDIATELY
  •  WE PROVIDE A FOLLOW-UP VISIT IN 6 MONTHS TO MONITOR THE HEALING OF YOUR ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
  • IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CALL THE OFFICE AT 631-724-3390
