About Post-Op Care
Once your root canal therapy is completed, you may experience some discomfort for two-to-three days while your tooth and jaw continue to heal. This is nothing to be concerned about, but do contact our office if you experience unusual or prolonged pain.
Can I go back to work after my root canal?
Your jaw may be sore and your lip may be numb, but you should be in good shape to continue your regular schedule. However, we do not recommend leaving your appointment and going straight to an important lunch meeting (unless you wear a bib). In terms of your schedule, it should be no different than getting a filling or a crown.
