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.
