Root canal treatment is typically recommended when a patient has an infected tooth. The signs of infection can include severe pain, swelling of the gums, discolouration of the tooth, and extreme sensitivity to cold and hot temperatures. If you experience any of these symptoms, call us to see one of our experienced dentists immediately to determine the best course of action.
After your root canal treatment is complete, you can expect some tenderness and discomfort in the area. This is normal and should subside within a few days. It is important to follow the dentist’s instructions for care and take any medications prescribed. You may also need a follow-up visit to ensure the treatment was successful. Additionally, it is important to maintain good oral hygiene practices, such as brushing and flossing twice a day, to help prevent future issues.
Aftercare and recovery from a root canal treatment are important for the procedure’s success. After the procedure, following the dentist’s instructions for proper care is important, such as avoiding hard or sticky foods, brushing and flossing regularly, and avoiding smoking. Your dentist may also prescribe medications to help with the healing process.
