If your child’s mouth is numb closely watch your child until the anesthesia wears off. Local anesthesia may last as long as 3 hours. Do not allow him/her to bite, suck, or rub the lips, face or tongue while they feel numb.
To minimize any discomfort, you may give your child ibuprofen every 6 hours as needed.
Continue to brush and floss the teeth starting this evening.
Occasionally the teeth may be sensitive to hot or cold temperatures after being restored.
Care of Mouth After Restorations
Please encourage your child to avoid biting into foods with front teeth after being restored.
