Generally, the level of pain from your infected tooth will dramatically decrease immediately after your procedure, and your heightened sensitivity to hot and cold will disappear. You may experience some residual discomfort for the first 24–48 hours after the procedure, but you can usually treat it with common over-the-counter pain medications.
It is rare, but if you experience significant pain that can’t be treated with over-the-counter medications, or visible swelling near your treated tooth, please contact us. If you reach us after hours, please follow the prompt in our voicemail to access our emergency line. Click here to learn more about your aftercare.
