Filling Post Op

Here are your post-op instructions for the fillings we placed today. Please call us at Lund Dental Phone Number 781-438-2700 or email us at [email protected] if you have any questions.

  • Your anesthesia will wear off in approximately 1 to 3 hours after the procedure. It is very important not to chew on the numb side until the anesthesia wears off. It is easy to bite or burn your cheek, tongue, or lip while numb.
  • Once the anesthesia has worn off, if you feel as though any of the teeth we have worked on are hitting first, please give the office a call immediately. This imbalance with your bite may cause further discomfort and should be adjusted.
  • Your tooth (or teeth) may be sensitive to hot, cold or pressure from the procedure. This is COMPLETELY normal. The more invasive the procedure, the more sensitivity you may experience. The possible symptoms of hot, cold, or pressure will cease within a few days to a couple of weeks. In very few instances, this sensitivity could last longer than a couple of weeks. As long as your teeth or gums are continuing to feel better (not staying the same, or getting worse), everything is fine. There is no need for concern.

We thank you for being a part of the Lund Dental family.
