Home Care Instructions
Your tooth and surrounding gum tissue may be tender for several days as a result of manipulation during treatment and the 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 restorative dentist. You should continue your regular dental hygiene regimen. Discomfort may be alleviated by taking pain relief medications 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 suggested medications, or should swelling develop, please contact our office immediately.
The office telephone is answered day and night. If you need to call after hours, please have your pharmacy number available.
