Dental Trauma Aftercare
Greater Endodontics is one of the few endodontist offices in Utah that is open 24/7. We understand that emergencies can happen at any moment and fast action is important in cases of dental trauma. Our offices are open after hours to serve patients that have experienced emergency trauma such as avulsed teeth, root fractures, dislodged teeth, and acute infections. While every case is an individual emergency that requires unique care, these are the basic aftercare instructions our endodontics recommend following dental trauma:
Trauma Aftercare Tips
Do not aggravate the damaged tooth or area of the mouth. It may be recommended that you do not eat or drink for up to 24 hours following the procedure.
To manage pain and soreness, over the counter painkillers may be taken as needed. If necessary, your dentist will provide something stronger.
Keep the mouth as clean as possible. If specific care instructions are needed, your dentist will let you know and provide the necessary supplies.
While your injury heals, a specific diet may be recommended. Soft foods like yogurt, soups, and smoothies are easy on a sore mouth.
Contact your Utah endodontist at any sign of infection, increased bleeding, or worsened symptoms.
