Root Canal Treatment Aftercare
So, the root canal is complete. Great job! With the most challenging part out of the way, you can focus on aftercare and prevent other problems down the line.
It’s safe to return to the regular routine of brushing twice daily and flossing once. Still, it’s a good idea to be careful around sensitive areas and not pull the floss up near your temporary filling or crown, or you risk pulling it out.
If you’re experiencing slight discomfort after your procedure, don’t worry, it’s normal for this to persist for a few days. For a quick fix, try rinsing with luke-warm saltwater. Otherwise, your dentist may recommend over-the-counter medications to help with your symptoms.
