After getting a root canal, it`s important to take care of your tooth to ensure proper healing and prevent complications. Here are some things to avoid after a root canal:
🦷Chewing on the Treated Tooth: Avoid chewing on the treated tooth until the restoration (such as a crown) is placed. The tooth may be temporarily weakened, and putting excessive pressure on it could lead to fractures.
🦷Eating Hard or Sticky Foods: Steer clear of hard and sticky foods that could potentially damage the tooth or the temporary restoration. Opt for softer, easy-to-chew foods during the initial healing period.
🦷Hot and Cold Sensitivity: You may experience some sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures after a root canal. Avoid consuming extremely hot or cold foods and beverages until the sensitivity subsides.
🦷Poor Oral Hygiene: Continue to maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly. However, be gentle around the treated area. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush to avoid irritation.
