Root Canal FAQs
After your root canal, you can expect to feel a bit of sensitivity and tenderness around your damaged tooth. Be sure to wait to eat until your mouth is no longer numb and avoid chewing on the affected side of your mouth. Even though it may be tender, be sure to keep brushing and flossing gently to help prevent infection and bacteria buildup.
You can keep an eye out for a root canal infection by watching for severe pain that lasts longer than a few days, visible swelling, and your original symptoms returning. If you notice any out-of-the-ordinary discomfort, be sure to contact us immediately so Dr. Eck can prevent any further damage.
