If you don’t keep the area of the root canal clean, you are seriously running the risk of infection. Hygiene is vital to making sure you stay healthy. These infections are no joke, they can cause severe oral discomfort and terrible breath at the very least. This is an easy fix. Keeping up with brushing and flossing as well as maybe a rinse of your mouth can help you stay on top of any possible infections.
Root Canal Post-OP Tips | Foods
Your tooth is more than likely to be very sore following a root canal treatment. Therefore, you should be avoiding certain foods and certain types of foods in order for the area to properly and comfortably heal.
