Dental Restoration Aftercare - Utah Endodontist
Dental restoration involves procedures that keep your mouth healthy and restoring any damages. Typical restorative procedures include fillings, crowns, and implants. This type of dental work is common and typically does not require too much recovery time. Your dental restoration specialist in Utah will inform you of specific preparation and aftercare instructions depending on the type of dental work you are receiving. General aftercare instructions for restorative dental care work is as follows:
Do not eat or chew on the side of mouth where the procedure was performed until your anesthesia wears off. This is to prevent you from accidentally biting your gum or cheek which can damage your mouth and possibly lead to infection.
Over the counter pain medications can be used to manage any soreness. Pain should be significantly reduced the day following the procedure. If you experience worsening pain or swelling, be sure to contact your Utah endodontist.
Clean, brush, and floss your teeth as you normally would to keep your mouth clean and minimize infection. Be gentle around the area of your mouth where your procedure was performed.
After your mouth has healed, ongoing care includes maintaining proper dental hygiene. A diet low in sugar and brushing, flossing, and rinsing 2-3 times daily greatly reduces chances of cavity and tooth decay.
