Filling Instructions

What should I expect after my fillings are complete?

Until the numbness has completely worn off, avoid chewing to prevent damage to your tongue, cheeks and lips.

What if my fillings are sensitive?

It is normal to experience some sensitivity to heat, cold and pressure after your fillings. Sometimes it can last for months.

Do I have to be careful with my fillings?

After the numbness from the anesthetic subsides you can chew normally. If your bite feels uneven, please give us a call!
