Root canal Post-op Instructions

After treatment :

Your endodontic (root canal) treatment is now complete. Taking an analgesic before the numbness wears off may help maintain an acceptable comfort level. Please wait to eat or drink on the affected side until after the numbness has worn away. Please do not chew or attempt to eat on the affected side while you are still numb.

Discomfort :

Discomfort or soreness in the area is normal for a few days (or even weeks) and range from mild to severe. This occurs because of existing infection and inflammation of the gum and tooth ligaments as well as the manipulation of the tooth during treatment. The gums may be sore and the tooth is often tender to biting or chewing. Rinsing with warm salt water (1 teaspoon of salt per glass of warm water) will help. Discomfort in the area in no way affects the succesful outcome of treatment.

If an antibiotics and/or pain medications were prescribed, please take them as directed. If you were given a prescription for pain, it is meant to help you with more serious discomfort only for a couple of days. In the unlikely event that swelling, fever, or severe pain should occur, please call the office promptly.

Temporary Filling :

A temporary filling has been placed in the entry made into your tooth. It is normal for a thin layer of the temporary filling to be chewed away between appointments. An unusual taste can be expected. Should all of the temporary filling come out, please call our office. It's important that your temporary filling stays intact until the placement of a permanent restoration.

Final Restorations :

IF AN APPOINTMENT TO PLACE A FINAL RESTORATION HAS NOT BEEN MADE, PLEASE TELEPHONE TO SCHEDULE THIS APPOINTMENT PROMTPLY. Endodontically treated teeth have been weakened by previous decay and fillings. It is necessary for these teeth to receive additional protection in the form of a cast restoration (onlay or crown). This will protect these teeth against future fracture and decay, and protect the root canal filling from possible contamination. Delay in obtaining a final restoration may result in fracture and/or possible loss of the tooth or require a retreatment or a root canal.

If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to call our office for consultation.

7. 根管治疗时医生只能根据X光片或根管系统进行大致了解,如遇复杂根管(弯曲,细窄,钙化阻塞,器械折、侧穿)或其他特殊情况时,根管治疗难度增大,需要使用特殊设备和材料,治疗时间相应增加。复杂根管治疗中可能发生器械折断情况,不要求强行取出折断器械,该器械可以留在根管中充当根管充填材料,再定期复查。

8. 根管治疗后,机体有一个修复适应过程,短期内会有部分患者感觉不适,如情况不是逐渐加重可观察随访。

​9. 恒牙根管治疗成功率一般为80-95%,根管再治疗的成功率一般为30-40%,确定为无法治愈的患牙,必要时需要拔除。 

10. 为保证根管治疗效果,一般由同一医生完成整个治疗过程。无特殊情况请按预约复诊,需要改约请提前至少1天电话告知。
