The numbness as a result of your local anesthesia should wear off in a couple of hours after the Restorative Procedure. Our Family Cosmetic Dental Specialist will need you to have someone with you for the first 24 hours, you’ll be taking pain medications that would make you very sleepy, and we will want someone to be with you in case you have any complications and need assistance.
It’s best to avoid ingesting hot or cold beverages and eating on the side of your mouth with the brand new Restorative Dental Filling. If you’ve got any real pain when biting, please give us a call an we’ll help you as soon as possible. Continue to brush and floss as normal every day, at Family Cosmetic Dentistry we always recommend our patients to pass by the office at least two times per year for your regular checkups and cleanings.
