- Refrain from eating for at least 2 hours or until the anesthesia has worn off.
- Sensitivity, especially to cold, is common for a time following treatment. For the first few days avoid extremely hot or cold foods and beverages. It is normal to have discomfort in the gums around the tooth after the anesthesia wears off. If your gums are tender, rinse with warm salt water, dissolving 1/2 teaspoon of salt in an 8 oz. glass of warm water. Tylenol or Advil can be used as well to decrease discomfort. After the placement of your new restoration, it may take a few days to get used to it. If your bite feels unbalanced, please be sure to call/text our office at 855-Go-Super(467-8737) for an appointment to get a simple adjustment.
- Although the treatment that was performed is durable, the underlying tooth is still vulnerable to decay, especially between the tooth and filling. It is important to resume regular brushing and flossing immediately. Daily home care and regulating your intake of sugar-containing foods will increase the longevity of your new restoration.
