After Completion of Endodontic Treatment

Endodontic treatment has now been completed. The root canal system has been permanently sealed. 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.

Depending on the treatment performed, we will re-evaluate the healing progress at 3, 6 or 12 months. We will send you at your instruction, either an e-mail or a postcard in the mail to remind you to schedule an appointment. Should you have any questions or concerns prior to your re-evaluation appointment, please do not hesitate to call our office for an earlier date.
