Home Care Instructions

Your tooth and surrounding gum tissue may be slightly tender for several days as a result of manipulation during treatment and previous condition of your tooth. This tenderness is normal and is no cause for alarm. Do not chew food on the affected side until your Endodontic therapy is completed and your final restoration has been placed. You may continue your regular dental hygiene regimen. Discomfort may be alleviated by taking ibuprofen (Advil), aspirin, or acetaminophen (Tylenol) as directed.  You will also be given written post-operative instructions at our office. 

NOTE: Alcohol intake is not advised while taking any of these medications. Should you experience discomfort that cannot be controlled with the above listed medications, or should swelling develop, please contact our office immediately.

We do have a call service that answers our phones if we are closed.  They will contact the Doctor on call. If you need to call after hours, please have your pharmacy number available.

If you have any questions, please call our office at Tacoma Endodontic Studio Phone Number 253-572-3266
