After Completion of Endodontic Treatment FAQ

What should I expect after my endodontic treatment?

Endodontic treatment has now been completed. The root canal system has been permanently sealed. However, the outer surface is sealed with a temporary restoration. A follow-up restoration must be placed to protect your tooth against fracture and decay. Please contact your general dentist for an appointment to complete permanent restoration. A complete report of treatment will be sent to your general dentist.

Your tooth is more prone to fracture immediately after endodontic treatment. You should chew on the other side until your general dentist has placed a core build-up and a protective restoration, usually a crown or permanent filling. If your tooth’s strength is seriously compromised, Dr. Milroy or Dr. Saltzman or your general dentist may place a post and core build-up inside the tooth. Your general dentist and endodontist will determine the appropriate restoration to best protect your tooth.
