Once treatment has been completed and your symptoms have subsided, your tooth needs to be permanently restored.  After leaving our office, a temporary restoration was placed in your tooth.  This restoration is only intended to last a couple of weeks.  Please contact your dentist to schedule a follow up appointment.  The treatment report will be emailed to your dentist.

As part of your root canal procedure, we like to evaluate you for a yearly follow up.  This appointment will only require a few minutes and does not have a fee.  If your provided your email address, we will send you a reminder for your yearly re-evaluation.

As a reminder follow these rules:

  • Do not chew or bite on the treated tooth until it is restored by your dentist.
  • Continue to brush and floss your teeth
  • Contact our office if you feel that the entire temporary filling has fallen out.  It is normal for a little of the filling to wear away.

Contact our office immediately if:

  • Visible swelling occurs
  • You develop a rash or itching
  • Nausea
  • Return of the original symptoms
  • Significant pain
  • Bite feels high, rough, or uneven
