Root Canal's In Lake Mary | Family Dental Care
Root canal therapy disinfects the inside of the root of an
infected tooth. Since every patient
heals differently, it is hard to predict what your experience will be. It is common to experience some mild soreness
when biting on the tooth for 3-10 days following your treatment. The following instructions are meant to guide
you through the healing process as comfortably as possible.
If prescription medications were prescribed please follow
the instructions on the label those given to you by the doctor to the
letter. If you experience any unexpected
side effects, please discontinue use and contact our office for assistance.
Liquid or soft diet only is permissible within the 24 hours
after surgery. It is important to drink
plenty of fluids. DO NOT SUCK LIQUIDS
THROUGH A STRAW, SPIT OR USE ANY ORAL RINSES WITHIN 48 HOURS OF TREATMENT.
Clean all other areas of your mouth as usual. Avoid the treatment site for 48 hours, and
then resume normal hygiene of the area. You may rinse with a mix of warm water
and salt to cleanse and soothe the affected area.
IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU REFRAIN FROM SMOKING FOR A MINIMUM
OF 48 HOURS AFTER SURGERY. If you
experience fever, a foul or infection type odor or taste near the area or
severe swelling lasting more than 24-48 hours please contact our office
The treatment has
been performed to save the affected tooth from extraction. It is important to return to our office
immediately after healing to complete the restoration (crown) portion of
treatment for this tooth. Your tooth
will not be entirely treated or secure until it has been permanently restored
with a crown.
Please do not hesitate to contact our
office with any questions or concerns. If you should require urgent assistance after hours, please call: 407-529-5681
you for being a great patient!
