What Not to Do After Root Canal Treatment

Fair Oaks Dental Group provides quality root canal treatment to you and your family. Find out how to care for your tooth after root canal treatment.

Endodontists (root canal dentist) recommend root canal procedure when your tooth is badly damaged or infected. At Fair Oaks Dental Group, we treat and thousands of teeth offering our patients relief from pain caused by damaged or diseased teeth.

Getting a root canal is the most effective and painless way to restore your tooth and achieve a healthy-looking smile again. Root canal treatment not only improves the natural appearance of your teeth, it protects other teeth from excessive strain or wear.

During a root canal procedure, the infected or damaged nerve and pulp tissues are removed, and the inside of the tooth cleaned. The tooth is then sealed to restore it back to its natural look and function.

After getting a root canal here’s what you should not do:

Tooth sensitivity– You’re likely to experience your tooth becoming sensitive for the first few days after root canal procedure. This discomfort is normal and can be controlled by over-the-counter pain medications.

Do not chew or bite on the untreated tooth– Try to minimize chewing or biting until the tooth is completely restored. This helps to prevent recontamination of the interior teeth or the fragile tooth from breaking.

Do not stop oral hygiene– Practice regular oral health care such as flossing and brushing your teeth normally. Use antiseptic mouthwash and come for regular checkups.

Root canal treatment helps you save your tooth and maintain a natural healthy smile. After the treatment, you can continue to eat the foods you love, bite and chew with ease.
