After the root canal system has been permanently sealed, endodontic treatment is complete. However, the outer surface is sealed with a temporary restoration. A follow-up restoration must be placed to protect your tooth against fracture and decay. Please telephone your restorative dentist for an appointment. A complete report of treatment will be sent to your restorative dentist.
Included in your treatment is a follow-up examination to evaluate the progress of healing. This appointment will require only a few minutes and no additional fee will be charged for the first check-up visit. We will mail a card to you that you addressed at your treatment visit. This will remind you it is time to check your healing progress. Please call our office when you receive this card to schedule an appointment that is convenient for you.
The recheck period will vary from 3-6 months after treatment is completed.
