In the first hours after a visit to the endodontist it is better to refrain from eating in order no to damage the seal.
If you were provided with anesthetic, its effect will last for several hours. During this period, there is a risk of biting the cheeks, lips and tongue. This is another reason why doctors ask patients to refrain from eating for some time after treatment.
After treatment it is possible slight pain, which can be removed with painkillers.
On the first day can be increased tooth sensitivity and gingival swelling, but these are usually rare occurrence.
Tooth after root canal treatment should be restored as soon as possible. If you between visits to the dentist your temporary filling fell out, then you need to visit doctor as soon as possible.
Remember that only reliable and timely recovery of the tooth after root canal treatment ensures its long-term service.
