What is recovery like following a root canal?

Following a root canal, it’s normal to experience some mild swelling and sensitivity. To limit any discomfort, take over-the-counter pain medication or apply an ice pack to your cheek.

In the first few days following treatment, eat soft foods like mashed potatoes, scrambled eggs, and soup. Continue to brush and floss like normal, but do so gently around your treated tooth.

To learn more about root canal therapy, request a consultation at Desert Dentist. Book an appointment with the online scheduling tool or call the nearest office today.
