Regardless of the type of restorative care you need for your smile, why you need it, when you require it, and how long it’s going to take, there’s generally one question on every patient’s mind that tends to trump all others. The question is: Will it be comfortable? Of course, we know that when you sit down to really think it through, you’re concerned not only with the experience you have in our dental chair but also in the entirety of what you can expect even after the treatment is over. We can fill you in on the steps and the comfort you can look forward to as you move through the transition from restoration to your every day life.
During Your Procedure
During your restorative care procedure, you will be nice and comfortable. The last thing that we want to do is to convince you in any way that taking care of your teeth or repairing your smile results in any type of discomfort. Instead, we want to show you that it’s an easy experience, that you’ll feel wonderful, and that care is no biggie! Remember, you’re going to have numb oral tissues during your visit.
Immediately After Your Treatment
Right after your treatment, you will not feel any discomfort either. Your tissues will remain numb for a bit. Or, we can provide you with Oraverse if you need the effects of your local anesthetic to go away more quickly. In either case, you may take over the counter pain relievers to address any mild discomfort that may follow your treatment as the day progresses. This will go away within a day or two.
In The Long Run
The goal is to repair your smile with restorative care, so you don’t have any type of discomfort! The long-term goal of restorations is a smile that is healthy and functional, which means it will feel good.
