After Completion of Endodontic Treatment.

What should I expect after my endodontic treatment?

Your tooth and surrounding gum tissue may be slightly tender for several days after treatment from the procedure and previous condition of your tooth. This tenderness is normal and is no cause for alarm. Do not chew excessively on the affected side until your endodontic therapy is completed and your tooth is covered with a protective restoration provided by your restorative dentist. You may continue your regular dental hygiene regimen. Any discomfort may be alleviated by taking ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), aspirin, or acetaminophen (Tylenol) as directed.

After Completion 

After endodontic treatment, the root canal system has been permanently sealed. However, the outer access is closed with a temporary restoration. A permanent restoration must be placed to protect your tooth against fracture and decay. Please telephone your restorative dentist for an appointment. A complete treatment report and x-rays will be sent to your restorative dentist. Included with your endodontic treatment is a follow-up examination to evaluate your healing progress. This appointment will require only a few minutes and is included as part of your initial treatment.
