Home Care Instructions
Your tooth and surrounding gum tissue may be slightly tender for several days as a result of manipulation during treatment and previous condition of your tooth. This tenderness is normal and is no cause for alarm. Do not chew food on the affected side until your endodontic therapy is completed and your tooth is covered with a protective restoration provided by your restorative dentist. You may continue your regular dental hygiene regimen. Discomfort may be alleviated by taking ibuprofen (Advil), aspirin, or acetaminophen (Tylenol) as directed. If you were given a post-operative pain medication at your treatment visit, you may use that as directed for discomfort as well.
The office telephone is answered during office hours only. If you need to call after hours, please contact Dr. Haglund on his cellular phone at (704) 641-5661 and have your pharmacy number available.
