⦿ Do not chew or bite on the treated tooth until you have had it restored with a crown.
⦿ Be sure to brush and floss your teeth as you normally would.
⦿ If the opening in your tooth was restored with a temporary filling material, it is not unusual for a thin layer to wear off in-between appointments. However, if you think the entire filling has come out, please call the office.

⦿ Visible swelling inside or outside of your mouth.
⦿ Allergic reaction to medication, including rash, hives, or itching (nausea is not an allergic reaction).
