Does root canal treatment require any recovery time?

You may experience some sensitivity in your tooth for the next couple of days following your root canal treatment. This can usually be treated with over-the-counter medication such as ibuprofen. Most people are able to return to work and other regular activities the day after treatment. To avoid recontamination if your tooth has not yet been sealed, try to avoid chewing on the side of the mouth where the affected tooth is. Once your tooth has been sealed, it will be restored to full function. If you are still experiencing sensitivity and discomfort after a few days have passed, please call our office.
