Root Canal


Your lips, teeth and tongue may be numb for several hours if anesthesia was used. While your mouth is numb, you'll want to be careful not to bite your cheek, lip or tongue. Avoid eating until you regain the feeling back in your mouth. If the numbness doesn't subside within several hours or by the following day, contact our office.

After a root canal your teeth, gums and jaw may be sensitive for a day or two. You should take any medications for discomfort that the dentist prescribed while you were at our office.

Crown Required
After a root canal a crown will be required in the near future. The crown is a necessary covering to protect your tooth after the root canal. It is important that you schedule an appointment to have the crown placed on the tooth within the next few months.
