After Treatment

Endodontic treatment has now been completed. A complete report of treatment will be sent to your general dentist. The root canal system has been permanently sealed. However, the outer surface is sealed with a temporary restoration. A permanent restoration must be placed by your general dentist within 1 month of your endodontic treatment to protect your tooth against fracture and decay.  Please telephone your general dentist for an appointment.

Your tooth is more prone to fracture immediately after endodontic treatment. You should chew on the other side of your mouth until your general dentist has placed a core build-up and a protective restoration, usually a crown. 

If you have any questions, please call our office at (801) 224-3200.
