For 7-10 days, pain may occur in the form of tingling interrupted with painkillers. There is always the possibility of extraction of the canal-treated tooth.
If the patient was studied with anesthesia after root canal treatment, the patient should not eat anything before the anesthesia has dissipated (lethargy).
After the local anesthesia has passed, temporary pain may occur in the soft tissue area where the needle enters.
Things to pay attention:
Do not use your teeth to chew hard foods between canal treatment sessions. Your tooth may break because there is a temporary filling in your tooth.
You can complain of pain between sessions, contact your doctor.
There may be swelling on your face between sessions. There is nothing to worry about, this is a reaction caused by microorganisms and is corrected by dressings. Consult your doctor.
You may complain of pain when you press on your tooth for a few days after your canal treatment is over. After a while, your complaint will pass, if it does not, contact your doctor.
As the canal treated teeth lose their vitality, their flexibility decreases. Therefore, the risk of breakage afterward is very high. Please consider your physician’s recommendations for the restoration of the crown part of the tooth in the mouth according to the damage to the tooth. This will allow you to use your teeth for a long time.
Protection from dental caries:
Good oral and dental care is essential to prevent the formation of new tooth decay in the root-canal treatment tooth or to control the infection. For this, regular care of the teeth with toothbrush-fluoride toothpaste and dental floss is essential.
