A treated and restored tooth can last a lifetime with proper care. Root canals have a high success rate. Here are a few ways to take care of your teeth after a root canal:
- Practice good oral hygiene: Brush teeth twice and floss at least once a day. Taking care of your teeth can help prevent future problems.
- Visit the dentist regularly: Cleanings and examinations by dentists and hygienists are important to check-up on the status of your root canal.
- Avoid chewing on hard foods: Chewing on hard foods such as ice can cause teeth to break, and can harm root canals.
If you have any concerns after your root canal procedure let your dentist know as soon as possible!
