Call our office if your bite feels uneven, you have persistent sensitivity or discomfort, or if you have any questions or concerns.
To protect your onlay, avoid chewing ice or other hard objects. If we used an anesthetic during the procedure, avoid chewing until the numbness has completely worn off.
If your teeth are sensitive to hot, cold, or pressure, use desensitizing toothpaste. If sensitivity persists beyond a few days, call us.
Take antibiotics or other medications only as directed. To reduce any discomfort or swelling, rinse your mouth three times a day with warm salt water. Use about 1 teaspoon of salt per glass of warm water. It's normal for your gums to be sore for several days.
