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. 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 general dentist. You may continue your regular dental hygiene regimen. Discomfort may be alleviated by taking ibuprofen (Advil), aspirin, or acetaminophen (Tylenol) as directed.
NOTE: Alcohol intake is not advised while taking any of these medications. Should you experience discomfort that cannot be controlled with the above listed medications, or should swelling develop, please contact this office immediately.
For more detailed information and recommendations following endodontic treatment, see the Post Operative Instructions page.
