After Initial Treatment
The tooth and its surrounding gum tissues may be somewhat tender for several days as a result of manipulation during treatment and also because of the condition with which you came to the office.
If necessary, take pain medication every four to six hours and bathe the tooth with warm salt water. A level teaspoonful of ordinary salt placed in a glassful of tap water, as hot as you can comfortably tolerate, is the right combination. For faster relief, bathe the tooth every hour on the hour.
Do not be surprised if you cannot eat with this tooth for a few days. Brush your teeth as usual.
Should pain become severe or swelling develop, please call the office. Remember, we are as near as your telephone.
