AFTER SURGICAL TREATMENT

Your tooth and surrounding gum tissue may be slightly tender for a few days as a result of manipulation during treatment and the previous condition of your tooth. Please do not be alarmed as this tenderness is normal! Do not chew food on the affected side until your root canal therapy is completed and your tooth is restored with a protective restoration, such as a crown, provided by your restorative dentist. You may continue your regular dental hygiene regimen.

Your discomfort may be alleviated by taking ibuprofen (Advil), aspirin or acetaminophen (Tylenol) as directed.

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 the other prescription medication you were given, or should excessive swelling develop, please contact Dr. Pranikoff immediately. If you need to call after hours, please have your pharmacy number available. If you call our office after hours, please specify that you are having an emergency. (e.g. swelling or extreme discomfort). Dr. Pranikoff will be paged immediately. Typically, you will receive a call back within 20 minutes.

Endodontic treatment has now been completed. The root canal system has been permanently sealed. However, the outer surface is sealed with a temporary restoration. A follow-up restoration MUST be placed to protect your tooth against fracture and decay. Our office staff will be happy to call your dentist to set up an appointment for you if you wish. A complete report of treatment and x-rays will be sent to your restorative dentist. Often included in your treatment is a follow-up examination to evaluate the progress of healing. This appointment will require only a few minutes and no additional fee will be charged for these check-up appointments.
