Root Canal
 

Some degree of discomfort is normal for a period following root canal therapy. Individual experiences may vary depending upon a number of factors:

  • Your original diagnosis
  • Pain and/ or swelling prior to treatment
  • How long the infection was present
  • Individual reaction to dental therapy


It is difficult to predict which symptoms, if any may experience and to what extent. It is possible to experience any of the following symptoms after root canal treatment:

  • Sensitivity and tenderness around the area treated
  • Sensitivity to pressure


If you experienced PAIN or SWELLING please contact our office; it may be necessary to prescribe an ANTIBIOTIC for you.

AVOID CHEWING on th treatment side until final restoration is placed.

During Endodontic treatment, the nerve, blood and nutrient supply to the tooth is removed. This will cause the tooth to become brittle and prone to fracturing.

Do not bite or chew on the tooth while a temporary is in place; it can fracture the tooth. Wait until the final restoration is placed.

A permanent restoration needs to be placed on the root canal tooth to prevent re-infection and to preserve and protect the fragile tooth.

Brush gently around the root canal tooth.

You may notice that after the treatment, your tooth (particularly the front tooth) has undergone a change in color. There are several treatment options to correct this and Dr. Grafman can go over them with you.

IMPORTANT:

*DO NOT EAT ON THE TOOTH WHILE TEMPORARY IS IN PLACE

*CALL OUR OFFICE IF YOU EXPERIENCE PROLONGED PAIN AND/OR SWELLING
