Root Canal

Root Canal Therapy

The healing process may take a few days. Minor discomfort will gradually subside. You may experience moderate sensitivity to pressure. It is normal for your gum near the treated tooth to feel sore for a few days after treatment.

Take any medications prescribed for you by Marion Dental Associates according to instructions.

Please wait till the numbness is gone before attempting to eat or chew anything.

Continue brushing and flossing.

Typically, a temporary filling has been placed on your tooth. Please do not bite down on this tooth for at least one hour.

The temporary filling must be replaced within 2-6 weeks. Please follow up with the placement of your permanent restoration as you have been instructed. Remember, an extended delay placing the final restoration may cause permanent damage to your tooth.

Please call the office if you are experience pain or swelling or if you have any questions.
