Root canal therapy often takes one to two appointments to complete. A temporary filling is placed to protect the tooth between appointments.
It is normal to experience mild discomfort for a few days after a root canal appointment, especially when chewing.
To control discomfort, take pain-relieving medication as recommended. If antibiotics are prescribed, continue to take them even if all symptoms of infection are gone.
To protect the tooth and help keep your temporary in place, avoid eating sticky foods (especially chewing gum), hard foods, and if possible, chew on the opposite side of your mouth. It is important to continue to brush the area normally.
