Home Care Instructions
Your tooth and surrounding gum tissue may be slightly tender for several days after treatment. This tenderness is normal and is no cause for alarm. Discomfort may be alleviated by taking ibuprofen (Advil), aspirin, or acetaminophen (Tylenol) as directed. Do not chew food on the affected side until your endodontic therapy is completed and your tooth is covered with a protective restoration provided by your restorative dentist. You may continue your regular dental hygiene regimen.
Should you experience discomfort that cannot be controlled with the above listed medications, or should swelling develop, please contact our office immediately.
