Composite restoration | post-treatment tips


Anesthesia

The anesthesia will disappear completely within 2 to 3 hours after treatment. Avoid chewing on the treated side before the anesthesia wears off or you may bite your cheek and hurt yourself.

Medication

No medication is prescribed in advance for a dental restoration. On the other hand, if discomfort warrants it, we recommend Tylenol or regular Advil. It should be sufficient to control sensitivity.

Adaptation

It could take a little time to adapt to the new anatomy of the tooth but it should feel normal in a few days.

Sensitivity

It is normal to have some sensitivity following a dental restoration. Sensitivity to cold is also common and normal for a period of 7-14 days. You may use a toothpaste for sensitive teeth, such as Sensodyne or Colgate. If you experience pain when chewing, for a longer period of time than 2 weeks, it may be possible that an adjustment is necessary. Contact us and we will welcome you as soon as possible.

Oral hygiene care

Continue your usual hygiene care. Brush and floss daily.

Note

Some people believe that once a tooth has had a cavity and been filled that it cannot decay again ... FALSE! Decay can form on other parts of the tooth. It is therefore important to maintain meticulous oral hygiene habits.
