Post Root Canal Instructions - The tooth may be slightly tender for the next 24 to 36 hours. Ibuprofen (such as Motrin or Advil) should be adequate for relief. - If a temporary filling was placed, please be gentle when eating, as well as when you are brushing and flossing. Stay away from overly hard and or chewy foods. - The definitive restoration recommended for the tooth will depend on the amount of remaining tooth structure and location of the tooth. Many root canal treated teeth will require a crown to avoid future fractures. This is because the tooth will become brittle and more susceptible to fracture after root canal treatment.
