After Completion of                 Endodontic Treatment

Endodontic treatment has now been completed. The root canal system has been sealed. However, the outer surface is sealed with a temporary restoration. A follow-up restoration must be placed to protect your tooth against fracture and decay. Please contact your restorative dentist for an appointment. A complete report of treatment will be sent to your restorative dentist. 

Your tooth is more prone to fracture immediately after endodontic treatment. You should chew on the other side until your restorative dentist has placed a core build-up and a protective restoration, usually a crown. If your tooth’s strength is seriously compromised, your restorative dentist may place a post and core build-up inside the tooth. Your dentist and endodontist will determine the appropriate restoration to best protect your tooth.

If you have any questions, please call our office at Las Cruces Endodontics Phone Number 575-222-1600
