Despite strict length control of instruments during root canal preparation, pulp tissue fragments, necrotic tissue, microorganisms, tooth filings, and root canal irrigants (solutions) will be pushed beyond the end of the tooth. This may result in slight to severe swelling and/or post treatment pain. In such cases, either anti-inflammatory medications or antibiotics, or a combination of both may be prescribed. If you experience discomfort in which the recommended medications do not help, please call our office at Legacy Endodontics Phone Number 303-526-1502 and we will be glad to help you. Please have a pharmacy phone number available so we may call in the appropriate medications if indicated.
