Fillings Post Operative Instructions

The new filling you have is ready for chewing, however, be careful with the anesthetic. Your tongue and cheeks are numb and you may bite on them and not know it. (This is especially true with children. Remind them not to bite on their tongue until it wakes up)

With new fillings, they are sometimes sensitive to cold for 3-5 days. If this sensitivity should last longer than that time, please seek out you dental professional.

When the anesthetic leaves the teeth, if you should happen to notice the bite feeling not right or high, please call us to have this corrected immediately.
