After Completion of Endodontic Treatment

Endodontic treatment has now been completed. The root canal system has been permanently sealed. However, the outer surface is sealed with a temporary restoration. A permanent restoration must be placed by your general dentist to protect your tooth against fracture and decay.

Please telephone your general dentist for an appointment. A complete report of treatment will be sent to your general dentist. Included in your treatment is a follow-up examination to evaluate the progress of healing.

This appointment will require only a few minutes and no additional fee will be charged for the first check-up visit. A reminder will be mailed to you 6 – 12 months after treatment to call the office and schedule an appointment.

There are usually no restrictions after the procedure concerning driving or returning to work. A doctor is available for consultation at all times should a problem arise after your treatment.
