Root Canal Recovery Miami - Before and After - Case 1
There are many times in which root canal therapy may be completed. Drs. Pasquier of Miami Modern Dental provide this endodontic treatment when situations such as abscesses, infection, and trauma occur to a natural tooth. The procedure requires the removal of the dental pulp, which is tissue that houses the blood supply and nerves in the center of the tooth. Once removed, the area inside of the tooth is disinfected, and gutta percha is used to fill the canals. Filling is used on top, and in some cases, a dental crown is placed to protect the natural tooth structure.

This procedure is regularly done as an alternative to extraction. Extracting a natural tooth requires patients to consider restorative options that can be costly. Instead, a root canal treatment can provide success in maintaining the natural tooth and avoiding the concerns of restoration.

Many patients who are faced with the root canal procedure often ask about the recovery process. Root canal recovery is relatively simple. Patients may experience numbness for several hours after their procedure, and they are advised not to eat anything until this numbness wears off. This is because many patients may end up biting their tongue or cheek due to the lack of feeling. Patients are encouraged to continue brushing and flossing as they normally would, and to avoid biting or chewing on the tooth until the crown has been placed to keep from breaking the tooth and requiring extraction. When certain problems occur, patients should contact their dentist as soon as possible. These concerns include swelling, allergic reactions, continued pain and discomfort, and an uneven bite after therapy.

When patients arrive for their root canal therapy, they will be advised by their dentist on aftercare instructions for the best possible healing. Patients should discuss any concerns they may have with Drs. Pasquier of Miami Modern Dental before undergoing root canal therapy. Patients in and around the Miami area are encouraged to contact our professional dental team with any concerns and to learn more about this endodontic treatment which can maintain the natural tooth without any further concerns or restorative solutions necessary.
