Root Canal treatment
After your endodontic treatment appointment, it is recommended that you follow these instructions:
- Avoid eating or drinking anything hot on the treatment side until the effect of local anesthetic wears off.
- Avoid pressure or chewing on the tooth (teeth) that has been treated until you have seen your regular dentist for a permanent filling your tooth.
- Once endodontic treatment has been completed, you must return to your regular dentist to have the temporary filling replaced by a permanent filling. A crown is often recommended.
- Some discomfort associated with the treated tooth is not unusual. You may be instructed by your endodontist to take some medication for this post-operative discomfort.
