Post-Op Care for Root Canals

Dr. Kenneth Yost will provide instructions following your root canal treatment to help you recover and regain your oral health. These instructions are also provided here.

After your root canal you may experience discomfort for seven to 10 days. We recommend that you:

  • Do not eat for at least two hours or until your anesthesia has worn off
  • Avoid hard and chewy foods until discomfort subsides
  • Take all antibiotics and medications as described

If you have a reaction to medication, increased tenderness or swelling, a temporary crown that becomes dislodged or fractures in a treated tooth, please contact our office.

If you have any questions or to make an appointment with our dentist in Wilmington, Delaware, call Advanced Dental Artistry today at 302-477-1888.
