Will I have any discomfort after my root canal?

Following root canal therapy, you may experience some persistent inflammation around the affected tooth. We recommend consistent anti-inflammatory medications, such as 400-800mg of Ibuprofen (Advil) or 200-400mg of Naproxen Sodium (Aleve), to help with this discomfort. We also strongly recommend not chewing directly on the treated tooth for 2-3 days to allow proper time to heal.
