What To Expect After Your Root Canal

Your tooth may be tender for a few days, take an over the counter pain medication, such as Tylenol, Aleve, Advil, etc., or whichever medication you are able to take.

Sometimes during the sealing process of the root canal, some of the sealer material may express out the tip of the tooth. This may cause severe sensitivity but should subside after a few days.

Avoid playing with the root canaled tooth with your tongue. Any lateral forces will cause the tooth to remain sensitive.

Be aware if the restoration placed after your root canal procedure is too high upon biting together. Too much biting force on the restoration will also cause your tooth to remain sensitive. Please call the office for any needed adjustments.

If any sensitivity persists for more than a week or if you have any questions or concerns regarding your root canal or restoration.
