- Do not eat or chew anything until the numbness has completely worn off. It is very easy to injure your lip or tongue while you are numb.
- It is normal to experience some hot, cold or pressure sensitivity after your composite is finished.
- The injection site may also be sore. Tylenol, Ibuprofen or aspirin will work well to alleviate the tenderness.
- It is important that your bite is correctly balanced. If you feel that your bite is not correctly balanced, please call the office to request an appointment at no charge for a simple adjustment. If flossing is difficult please call for a minor adjustment.
Although some symptoms are normal after a filling, some are not normal. It is always possible that a tooth with deep decay can require a root canal after a deep composite filling is placed. If symptoms worsen please call.
Please call the office if you have any questions.
