How long does it take to recover from root canal treatment?

Root canals have a poor reputation because the preceding infection can be so painful. But with today’s advancements in dental technology and modern dental procedures, you can count on a far more comfortable root canal procedure than in the past.

At Affordable Dental Center of Wellington, Dr. Bussell uses rotary endodontics to perform root canals effectively and efficiently with minimal discomfort. He will also completely numb the area before even thinking of getting started! 

Recovering from a root canal will take some time. For the first few days, you may have some residual discomfort. But with each passing day, you will start to feel more like yourself again.

How to Recover From Root Canal

Here are some tips to help you recover from root canal treatment:

  • Stick to lukewarm and soft foods for a few days
  • Avoid chewing on your root canal tooth
  • Maintain your oral hygiene by brushing and flossing
  • Take over-the-counter pain meds as needed

Once you have your permanent crown on your root canal tooth, you can eat normally and expect to get many more years out of your tooth.
