Home Care Instructions

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 restorative dentist. You may continue your regular dental hygiene regimen.  Usually, post operative discomfort can be successfully managed with over the counter analgesics such as ibuprofen (Advil) or acetaminophen (Tylenol).  Stronger analgesics will be provided by prescription, if indicated.

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.

We are available to answer your questions or concerns at any time. If you need to call after hours, please have your pharmacy number available.
