Root Canal: Post Surgery Instructions

ROOT CANAL

Apicoectomy (Root Canal Surgery):

1- Swelling, minor pain and/or skin discoloration may be experienced following the surgical procedure. This will be temporary.

2- In order to keep the swelling to a minimum, use an ice pack for the first few hours after surgery (on for 10 minutes and off for 5 minutes).

3- The day after the surgery, use lukewarm water rinses for the treated area following each meal. This should continue for the first 3 days following the surgical procedure.

4- Eat only soft foods. Avoid hard and chewy foods.

5- Get plenty of rest and insure normal intake of food, especially liquids such as fruit juices, soup, and milk. Use a vitamin supplement if desired. Try not to sleep on the operated area for 2-3 days.

6- DO NOT raise your lips with your fingers to inspect the treated area.

7- DO NOT brush teeth near the surgical site. Brush teeth in the rest of your mouth.

8- There is often a temporary loss of feeling in the operated area and the tooth may feel loose.

9- Take all medication that was prescribed for you according to instructions.

10- Should any difficulties occur, do not hesitate to call our office anytime. In case of serious emergencies call 911.
