After Completion of Endodontic Treatment

Most patients return to their normal daily routine after treatment.  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 no cause for alarm. You may continue with your regular dental hygiene regimen.

We will thoroughly review any post-treatment recommendations once your treatment has been completed. This includes any medication recommendations, as well as if and when it may be necessary to return to your restorative dentist for further treatment of this tooth. 

Should you continue to experience discomfort that cannot be controlled with recommended medications, or should swelling develop, please contact our office.  The office telephone is answered day and night, as well as over the weekend. 

We make every effort to contact you either the same day of treatment or the following day to make sure that you are healing as anticipated, and to answer any additional questions that you may have. When indicated, we may also suggest returning to our office for a recall examination of the tooth. This may not be necessary for all cases. If we do advise returning for a recall appointment, we will mail you a reminder card.  There is no additional fee associated with the recall visit.

If you have any questions, please call our office at San Ramon Office Phone Number 925-901-0300
