Following a root canal process, you might experience a bit of soreness. Don’t worry: this is very normal. We’ve amassed the following data to support you as you adapt during this healing stage. Please tell us about it if you have any further inquiries about recovery after a root canal treatment.

After a root canal treatment, your tooth and the surrounding soft tissue and bone spots of the oral cavity may be achy for a couple of days. If the pain lasts longer than half of a week, reach out to us. Our dentist will work with you in hopes of relieving any pain, and this may include prescribing antibiotics or painkillers. During a later visit, if an impermanent filling was placed, the dentist will take out the impermanent filling and replace it with a permanent one. This regular filling or crown will seal the tooth to defend it from further harm. A metal or plastic post may also be seated to assist a crown if required.

We would love to see you in our office again so that we can look at your teeth and answer any questions you may have about root canal procedure options. Please call 770-995-9255 now to get in touch with the Barry E. Malkiel, DDS location in Lawrenceville, Georgia, and arrange a visit with Dr. Malkiel. Our team will be happy to help you with your dental care needs today!
