Oral Hygiene After Root Canal Treatment
Many people are curious if it is safe to brush or floss after having root canal therapy on a tooth.
Dr. Norton (practicing Endodontist in Louisville, KY) recommends that all of his patients continue with normal oral hygiene habits right after a root canal. Brushing and flossing are just as important after receiving treatment as any other time. In fact, keeping the amount of bacteria in your mouth to a minimum is especially important before, during and after dental treatment is performed.
