Post-Operative Instructions

White Fillings (Bonding)

  1. It is best to refrain from eating for at least two hours and/or the anesthesia has worn off to prevent possible injury to your soft tissue.
  2. Sensitivity to hot and cold is to be expected following treatment. For the first few days, try to avoid extremely hot or cold food and beverages.
  3. It is normal to have discomfort in the gyms around the tooth after the anesthesia wears off. If you do experience discomfort in the gum tissue, rinse the area with warm salt water. You can also take an Advil or Tylenol if the discomfort continues.
  4. It is important to resume regular brushing and flossing immediately. A consistent daily home care routine will increase the longevity of the restoration.

  1. It is best to refrain from eating for at least two hours and/or the anesthesia has worn off to prevent possible injury to your soft tissue. Do not eat anything hard or crunchy for at least 24 hours.
  2. Sensitivity to hot and cold is to be expected following treatment and for up to two weeks, depending on the size of the restoration. For the first few days try to avoid extremely hot or cold food and beverages.

Temporary:

    1. Please be careful when cleaning around the temporary restoration. Do not pull up on the temporary when flossing the area and make sure to brush the area gently.
    2. Do not chew hard or crunchy foods on the temporary restoration.
    3. If your temporary comes off between appointments, please call our office so that it can be reapplied.

Permanent Crown/Bridge

    1. When the final restoration is placed your bite may feel a little different. This is your mouth adjusting to the new addition. If is still feels off after a few days, please call the office for an adjustment.

Root Canal Therapy

  1. It is best to refrain from eating for at least two hours and/or the anesthesia has worn off to prevent possible injury to your soft tissue. This will also allow the temporary resorative material to harden.
  2. You will most likely feel soreness in the area as well as pressure when you bite down. For this reason you should avoid hard and chewy foods and avoid chewing on the treated side of your mouth for at least 24 hours. This soreness should decrease within a week.
  3. Take any antibiotic medication prescribed to you by the doctor to eliminate any remaining infection in the tooth.
  4. If you notice any of the following symptoms please contact our office:
  5. Increased tenderness or swelling in the area surrounding the tooth
  6. A reaction to the medication prescribed to you by the doctor.
