If your tooth becomes infected, you'll need root canal treatment to eliminate the infection and preserve your tooth. However, the procedure is more straightforward than you might think! Advanced dental technology has streamlined root canal treatment, so it's more comfortable and efficient for patients.
Because you're recovering from a tooth infection after a root canal, your tooth will need a few days to heal. Your Garland dentist may also prescribe antibiotics to help combat your infection, so you'll need a few days to finish your prescription. Most patients feel better around a week to ten days after their procedure.
After completely healing from your root canal treatment, you'll return to Garland Grove Dentistry to have Dr. Jung strengthen your tooth with a permanent dental crown or filling. During the procedure, after removing the infected tissue from inside your tooth, he sealed it with a temporary filling to allow it time to heal. You'll need a permanent restoration to ensure that your tooth provides all the functions for eating and chewing you were used to before your tooth infection.
