Try to avoid chewing or biting on the tooth being treated until you have it permanently restored with either a filling or a crown. Excessive pressure at this stage may crack or fracture the tooth.
Therefore, it is important to restore the tooth properly as soon as possible. Most endodontically-treated teeth last as long as natural teeth following a permanent restoration.
Practice good oral hygiene, including brushing and flossing at all times as root-filled teeth are as prone to decay as natural teeth. It is also important to have your root canal treated tooth reviewed regularly by your dentist.
