Congratulations! You made it through your root canal surgery procedure. The portion of your mouth where the surgery was performed may still feel numb. You might be wondering about how it would feel after the anesthesia wears out. Keep reading to learn what to expect!
Things to Expect After Root Canal
After a successful root canal surgery, you may experience mild pain or discomfort for a couple of days. There is no need to feel worried about this pain as it is temporary, and you'll be fine as long as you take care of your oral hygiene.
If you haven't undergone your surgery yet, then let us assure you that the pain you feel before the surgery is much worse than after you get your treatment done. The mild pain experienced after the procedure gets better quickly, and you become pain-free for life.
Please note that if your pain doesn't go away after three days, then you should visit us for a follow-up appointment.
Here are a few tips for you to follow in order to ensure that your pain subsides quickly and your teeth stay healthy after a root canal:
Avoid hard foods; only eat soft and easily chewable foods.
Brush your teeth gently at least twice a day. Make sure you use a soft toothbrush and clean your teeth by gently circling it on your teeth without aggravating them.
Floss your teeth at least once a day to help prevent future infections.
Avoid the intake of sugary foods and drinks.
Make regular cleaning appointments to keep your teeth healthy.
