Your tooth and surrounding gum tissue may be slightly tender for several days as a result of manipulation during treatment and previous condition of your tooth.
This tenderness is normal and is no cause for alarm.
The root canal system has been permanently sealed.
However, the outer surface is sealed with a temporary restoration.
A follow-up restoration must be placed to protect your tooth against fracture and decay.
Please go back to your dentist for follow up restoration.
Until the tooth is restored permanently, do not use the affected side to chew food.
Continue your regular dental hygiene regimen.
Discomfort may be alleviated by taking ibuprofen (Advil), aspirin, or acetaminophen (Tylenol) as directed.
All the treatments include any necessary follow-up exams or recalls at no additional fee to the patient.
Recall exams are very important to evaluate the progress of healing.
