How Long Does It Take To Recover From A Root Canal?

Posted on 9/19/2022 by Dr. Michael Han
How Long Does It Take To Recover From A Root Canal?Usually, it takes under a week to fully recover after a root canal operation. You could feel uncomfortable for a few days, but this is usually manageable with medication.

You can have minor soreness for a few days after a good root canal operation. If you practice appropriate oral hygiene, this will only be an issue for a short period. You should contact your dentist for a follow-up visit if the soreness has lasted longer than three days. You should see a doctor if you have significant aches or pains that linger for longer than a week.

You Should Not Bite Down On The Treated Tooth After The Procedure

Before you start eating again after your surgery, you should hold off until the numbness in your mouth has returned to normal. This will help ensure you do not accidentally bite your cheek or tongue. This will prevent any additional harm to the tooth that was treated. The tooth that was treated should not be chewed on or bit down on until a dentist has entirely repaired it.
