Some people experience pain in their teeth. Root canal treatment promotes the recovery of the tooth. However, there are some precautions after treatment, such as patients should eat foods that are easy to chew and not eat nuts. Patients should pay attention to their oral health and have regular follow-ups. Patients should use mouthwash to rinse their mouth after eating, which can reduce germ infection. If there is pain, patients should go to the clinic for examination as soon as possible.
Brush your teeth more often
After treatment and restoration, the biological function of the affected teeth will return to normal. Patients should not bite hard objects, especially nuts, regularly. Normal teeth can withstand very high biting forces. Diseased teeth can only withstand a few tenths of that. Pay attention to periodontal hygiene, periodontal health is the foundation of solid teeth. Patients can prevent bacterial growth by carefully brushing their teeth daily and scaling them regularly. Teeth are free of decay. Patients will not have the opportunity to receive root canal treatment.
Regular visits to the clinic
Patients should visit the clinic at least once to twice in six months interval. The dentist will examine your teeth. If the filling material is missing or fallen out, the dentist will fill the gap with new material. Bacteria can’t continue to attack your teeth anymore. Patients should have their teeth cleaned at the dental office every year.
Scaling removes food debris from the edges of the teeth. It will be difficult for bacteria to multiply in your mouth. Teeth can be well protected. The surface of the tooth after root canal treatment is a non-native material. This material is more susceptible to bacterial attack, so scaling is a good means of protection. Therefore, patients remember to visit the clinic more often.
Eat less sweets
Desserts are a favorite thing for bacteria. After a person eats dessert, the mouth is covered with sugar. This environment accelerates the growth of bacteria. And bacteria are one of the main ‘killers’ that make teeth damaged. Therefore, it is important for patients to eat less sweets. If patients eat sweets, they should also rinse their mouth or brush their teeth as soon as possible. Brushing will clean the environment inside the mouth and hinder the growth of bacteria.
Watch out for tooth pain
After root canal treatment, your dentist will tell you that the tooth may be slightly painful. However, this pain is not permanent. If six months after the procedure, your tooth still hurts vaguely. Or the tooth hurts when you chew food. You need to go to a nearby clinic right away. The dentist will help you find the cause of the pain.
