During and immediately following treatment be careful not to bite down too hard on the tooth so that you don’t damage it. Whilst the tooth is undergoing treatment a temporary filling may be placed to protect the tooth in between appointments and extra care will be needed when biting/chewing.
When looked after properly your root canal treated tooth should last for many years. Your Leicester Dentist will advise on the best way to restore your tooth after root canal treatment -initially with a strong filling and in the longer term with a crown or inlay/onlay.
In order to keep all of your teeth healthy it is important to maintain good oral hygiene- brushing and flossing teeth for 2 minutes, twice a day. Avoid eating too many sugary foods and visit your Leicester Dentist for regular dental health examinations.
