Post-Operative and After Care Instructions

Post Operative or After Care Instruction For Pulpectomy or Pulpotomy

  • Your child should be able to resume routine activities as soon as possible
  • Monitor your child closely so that he/she does not bite their tongue, cheek or lips until the anaesthesia effect wears off
  • Avoid eating until the numbness from the general anaesthesia wears off. Typically, this takes about ONE to TWO hours
  • A temporary dental filling is placed to protect your treated tooth between appointments. It’s common for a small portion of your temporary filling to wear away or break off. If the entire filling falls out, please call our pediatric dentist so it can be replaced
  • Avoid eating, drinking water, gargling or rinsing for 30 minutes so as to not hamper the setting of the cement/Filling placed over the tooth
  • Avoid chewing food on the side of your mouth where the surgery was performed
  • Child should preferably have only soft diet like rice, kichidi, upma, idli, curd rice, soft roti/phulka or mashed vegetables for first 24-48 hours after the dental procedure. Avoid hard and hot food for 2-3 days
  • Avoid brushing the teeth on that area for that night post treatment. Continue brushing and flossing as normal from the next day
  • Make sure the child takes the prescribed medicines post treatment
  • NO HOT FOMENTATION/PACK over the area of treatment

Call us immediately if the child has any of these symptoms:

  • Increasing pain or pain that lasts more than a few days
  • Swelling
  • Increasing sensitivity to heat and cold
  • Inability to chew on the tooth
  • Allergic reaction to medication

After the completion of Pulpectomy/Pulpotomy a crown/cap is recommended. Failure to have the tooth properly restored with a crown in a timely manner (generally within 10 days) significantly increases the possibility of failure of the Pulpectomy/Pulpotmy procedure or tooth fracture.
