After Completion of Endodontic Treatment

Endodontic treatment has now been completed. The root canal system has been permanently sealed. The outer surface is sealed with either a temporary or permanent restoration. Dr. Karney has informed you if your restoration is temporary or permanent.  If a temporary filling was placed, a follow-up restoration must be placed by your referring dentist to protect your tooth against fracture and decay. Please telephone your restorative dentist for an appointment. A complete report of treatment will be sent to your restorative dentist. There are cases for which Dr. Karney will request a follow-up examination to evaluate the progress of healing. This appointment will require only a few minutes and no additional fee will be charged for the first check-up visit. You will receive a card in the mail instructing you to call for an appointment.
