After Endodontic Treatment

  • There are usually no restrictions after the procedure concerning driving or returning to work.
  • 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 is normal and no cause for alarm.
  • Do not chew food on the affected side until your treatment is completed and your tooth is covered with a protective restoration provided by your general dentist.
  • You may continue your regular dental hygiene regimen after treatment unless otherwise stated.
  • Discomfort may be alleviated by taking Ibuprofen (Advil) alone or in combination with Acetaminophen (Tylenol) as directed.
