You may experience some minor sensitivity following treatment. This will diminish gradually over the next few days. You should wait to eat or drink until the anesthetic completely wears off to avoid biting your cheek or tongue. Your bite should feel comfortable after the anesthetic diminishes. If sensitivity to hot, cold, or bite pressure persists longer than one week, please call our office for a follow up evaluation and/or simple adjustment. The surface texture may feel different from your other teeth, but it will smooth with use.
Follow proper oral hygiene after treatment, such as brushing, flossing, and using a mouth rinse twice daily. Proper maintenance will not only prolong the life of the restoration, it will also help to prevent any other areas of concern for dental attention.
