After a root canal procedure, where infected nerve tissue is removed from your tooth, your mouth will be sensitive and need some extra care:
– Avoid eating food until the numbness has worn off and only eat soft foods at first.
– Keep your teeth clean to avoid developing an infection and use a soft-bristled brush while your teeth are recovering.
– Your dentist will be happy to provide more aftercare advice.
“Eating soft foods and keeping your mouth clean can also help to manage your pain or soreness, but always follow up with your dentist if you’re concerned about your level of pain.”
