Time to eat food
For a few hours after the root canal treatment, patients should only drink water. This is because the material that is laid on the surface of the tooth needs time to dry. The material is not dry and can enter the digestive tract along with food. The patient’s health can be at risk.
Foods with soft texture
For a few days after the treatment, the patient should eat foods with a soft texture. For example, borscht, milk or porridge. This is because the tooth is still very fragile after root canal treatment. Once the tooth is subjected to a huge biting force, it can shatter. This means that the root canal treatment fails. Moreover, the tooth may need to be extracted.
Here is a list of food recommendations. This recommendation sheet is designed for patients who are undergoing root canal treatment. There are several foods here that are specifically recommended by root canal specialists. You can choose the right food for you according to the food in the table.
