Regular follow-up visits
Root canal treatment goes to the clinic 2 to 3 times. The patient has to follow up the visit and change the medication promptly. After the first visit, the dentist will seal the medicine inside the tooth. The tooth is sealed with a temporary filling material. If the patient does not follow up with the dentist in time, the temporary filling material will fall off the tooth. If the inactivation drug is left inside the tooth, it will kill the nerve of the tooth adjacent to the affected tooth as well. Even after the root canal treatment is completed, the patient will need to return to the clinic every six months. The dentist will make a new assessment of the affected tooth and take new measures.
Keep a good attitude
Many patients fall into a state of worry after the procedure. Patients are afraid that their root canal will not be successful. This emotion can put the patient in a delusion. The patient’s tooth feels more and more painful. The more the patient worries, the more the nerves will secrete more bad substances that will not help the dental wound heal. Therefore, the patient is convinced that their treatment has been successful and will help the tooth to recover.
Pay attention to your teeth
It is normal for the tooth to hurt temporarily for a few days after treatment is over. These pains include swelling, tingling, etc. If the pain gradually decreases and eventually disappears. The patient can laugh and smile because your root canal treatment was successful. If the tooth continues to swell and hurt, or if the tooth turns dark in color. The patient should seek the help of a dentist as soon as possible because you failed the treatment.
Remember the crown
After root canal treatment, the tooth loses its supply of nutrients from the pulp. The tooth becomes weak. When the patient eats food, the tooth takes a tremendous amount of chewing power. The tooth is in danger of breaking at any time. Crowns can share the chewing force and protect the tooth. Therefore, after the root canal treatment, the patient should wear the crown immediately. Preferably within three months of successful treatment.
