Recovering From a Root Canal

Tuesday, September 26, 2017 04:05 PM

One of the procedures you may have done at PMDC is a root canal. Like any procedure, there is a recovery process after having a root canal done, and it will help to have an idea of what you can do to help this process along.

You will still need to eat after your root canal, and depending on the seriousness of the damage to your tooth, the entire root canal process may not be completed in one visit. Therefore, it is a good idea to try and avoid chewing with the tooth you had the root canal on as much as possible until the entire process is complete. This will help minimize the chances of further damage or another infection. In addition, it may also help minimize any pain you are feeling from that tooth. The best way to do this is to chew your food with the teeth on the opposite side of your mouth from the tooth the root canal was done on as much as you can. Depending on which tooth you had the procedure done on, this may be tricky, but it is worth trying.

After a root canal, your tooth may be sensitive and sore. There are several things you can do to help with this. One way is, as mentioned before, avoid chewing with the tooth the root canal was done on until the tooth is no longer in pain. It is also a good idea to avoid hard, crunchy foods for a few days. Simple over the counter pain medications can be used to help lessen any pain you experience from the tooth. The dentist who performs the procedure may also prescribe pain medication for you after the procedure. If they don’t do it on their own, you can ask them if they can set up a prescription for you.

Taking care of your tooth through regular cleaning is important, as well. That means brushing, flossing, and using mouth wash on a regular basis. It may be painful to clean your tooth for the first few days after the procedure, but it is important to keep at it, as not cleaning it may lead to more problems.  Make sure to brush with a toothbrush that has soft bristles, as a toothbrush with hard bristles may cause even more discomfort and could damage the tooth and the gums around it.
