Porcelain Inlay & Composite Inlay Post Treatment Expectation
It is common to feel some discomfort at the site of the anesthetic injection of in the tooth itself following the inlay treatment. Contact your dentist to see if taking an over the counter pain medication such as Advil is an appropriate solution. If the symptoms continue for more than a few days, contact your dentist about a followup visit to check for potential problems.
There are many reasons why your inlay may become loose, though it occurs very rarely. Should your inlay detach, become loose, or move, contact your dentist immediately. The longevity of either a filling or an inlay depends on your diet and oral hygiene regimen. Maintain your inlay with proper brushing and flossing as recommended by your dentist.
If you have any additional questions, please consult with the Glendale dentist.
