After Completion of Endodontic Treatment
Endodontic treatment has now been completed. The root canal system has been permanently sealed. However, the outer surface is sealed with a temporary restoration. A follow-up restoration must be placed to protect your tooth against fracture and decay. Please telephone your restorative dentist for an appointment. A complete report of treatment will be sent to your restorative dentist. Included in your treatment is a follow-up examination to evaluate the progress of healing. A recall card will be mailed to you when it is time to schedule this follow-up examination. Recalls in our office our provided at no adidtional fee to the patient.
Your tooth is more prone to fracture immediately after endodontic treatment. You should attempt to chew on the other side until your restorative dentist has placed restoration.
