What Should I Expect After Endodontic Treatment?
After root canal treatment, your medical record will be sent to the dentist who will handle your tooth restoration. Be sure to contact your dental office and schedule your restoration soon after your endodontic procedure. Your appointment should be within a few weeks of the completed treatment. This final restoration will protect the treated tooth. On rare occasions, some patients do experience complications after root canal or microsurgery.
