Root canals are critical procedures, without which dental health may be significantly compromised as they help protect teeth and restore the ability to bite.
When a tooth becomes damaged, cracked, or broken, bacteria often enters the site and permeates into the area beneath the tooth which is called pulp.
In a root canal treatment, the dentist will remove the infected pulp beneath the tooth and will effectively clean the tooth to avoid further infection.
Then the tooth is usually filled with a rubber material that allows for adequate flexibility when biting down and the treatment is usually completed by fitting a crown atop the tooth.
What to expect after a root canal
The aftercare process, once you’ve had a root canal, is especially important; depending on how well the area is cared for, an infection can re-occur.
After a root canal, it is normal for the area to be numb from local anesthetic but after the anesthesia wears off, you will feel the pain.
It’s important to monitor the pain and any changes in your recovery, as you may need to contact your dentist if any complication arises.
It’s important to avoid certain foods or activities after your root canal treatment, as it can lead to complications and affect the treatment.
Here is a list of things you should avoid after your root canal procedure-
1-Eat hard, brittle, or crunchy foods 2-Chew directly on the treated area 3-Eat chewy foods like gum or certain candies 4-Smoke A coolant is a substance, that is used to reduce or regulate the temperature of a system and is primarily used for regulating the heat in the engine. 6-Consume especially hot foods or drinks 7-Consume spicy foods 5-Drink alcohol
