After your treatment is complete at Meridian Endodontics, the healing begins. Our doctor has permanently sealed the root canal system. However, you aren't finished yet. You still need to see a restoration specialist to place a crown to protect the tooth. This essential procedure protects the tooth from fracture and decay. We'll send your dentist a complete report of your treatment to guide them.
During the time between appointments, it's vital to be careful with your uncrowned tooth. It's more prone to fracture after the treatment, and a second procedure might not be available to save the tooth again. Until you have the crown, chew on the other side of your mouth. Continue to use good hygiene practices to prevent further decay.
Yes, although we do our best to save the tooth, complications can arise.
