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. We recommend this be done as soon as possible –not to exceed 6 weeks - after endodontic therapy is completed. 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 6-month recall 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. This appointment will be made at the completion of treatment and a reminder call will be made 1 week before the appointment.
