After Completion Of Treatment
Endodontic treatment has now been completed. The root canal system has been permanently sealed. The outer surface is sealed with a temporary restoration. A permanent restoration must be placed to protect your tooth against leakage, contamination or fracture. Please schedule an appointment with your general dentist as soon as possible. A complete report of treatment will be sent to your general dentist. Included in your endodontic treatment is a follow-up visit to evaluate the progress of healing. This appointment will require only a few minutes and no additional fee will be charged. We will ask you to self address a postcard at the time of your treatment and we will mail it to notify you of your follow-up visit.
Your tooth is more prone to fracture immediately after endodontic treatment. You should chew on the other side until your restorative dentist has placed a permanent restoration.
