After Your Root Canal
We recommend taking pain medication within one hour of leaving our office, before the anesthetics subside We recommend Advil or Motrin (ibuprofen) 400-600mg, Tylenol (acetaminophen) 1000mg, or prescription pain medication from the treating doctor. Aspirin is not advisable, as it tends to increase bleeding in the area of treatment.
Teeth that have had root canal treatment are at more risk to fracture or split. Try to chew on the opposite side of the mouth until a crown is placed or the tooth is permanentaly restored. It is not uncommon for the tooth to be uncomfortable to bite, feel loose, or ache after root canal treatment. These symptoms should gradually improve within a few days or week.
