Root Canal After Care Utah
Many patients can feel anxious when they’re told they need a root canal, but at Greater Endodontics we utilize the latest technologies and techniques to minimize the pain associated with a traditional root canal. Our root canal specialist in Utah uses Gentle Wave, a less invasive and more accurate root canal procedure. If you are located in Utah and need a root canal procedure, the Greater Endodontics office is here to serve you. You can expect an anxiety and pain free procedure when you visit our office.
In order to facilitate healing, our Utah root canal specialists make the following aftercare recommendations:
- You will want to reduce stress on your tooth, so avoid chewing or biting down on the side of your mouth where the root canal was performed.
- It's best to avoid eating right after the procedure. When you feel ready to eat again, avoid hard, crunchy, and sticky foods. Hard foods can increase the risk of damaging the root canal and sticky foods are more likely to leave behind food particles which can increase the chance of an infection. Stick to soft foods instead, like soups and smoothies.
- Keep your mouth as clean as possible with proper brushing and flossing, but be gentle around the root canal area in the first days of healing.
- Take pain medications (prescribed or over the counter) as necessary. Pain and swelling should subside in the first few days. If you notice and increase in pain, swelling, or any other complications, call your dentist right away.
When it comes to a Utah root canal procedure, Greater Endodontics offers the most up to date, safest technique. Our Gentle Wave treatment combined with the proper root canal aftercare instructions will ensure a fast recovery time. Contact us today for an appointment.
GentleWave® cleans where others can’t
Preserve your natural tooth with the GentleWave® alternative. The GentleWave® System uses advanced fluid dynamics to create a vortex of procedure fluids that travel through your root canal system. Along the way, broad spectrum acoustic energy helps remove the tissue and debris that cause infection. Unlike standard root canal treatments, the GentleWave Ultra-Cleaning Procedure is able to reach all throughout your tooth—even in the microscopic places where bacteria can hide.
We are very proud to be able to offer this level of care to our patients. Greater Endodontics is trained in the use of the GentleWave® System and will gladly answer any questions you may have about this exciting new technology.
