Treatment of canal teeth: effects
Conducting canal treatment can result in increased sensitivity. This is particularly acute in patients who experience severe pain before the procedure.
The reason for which sensitivity develops is the reaction of the body to an alien body. After a while the situation is normal, sensitivity becomes normal.
To accelerate the process of adaptation, it is necessary not to load the tooth for some time, to perform hygienic procedures and to follow all the orders of the doctor who treated the canals of the tooth.
