Post Operative Instructions following fillings:

  • For an hour following your visit, do not chew. Wait until numbness subsides before eating.
  • Do not bite your lips, cheeks, or scrape your gums. Children should be watched carefully to make sure they don’t do this. It will damage soft tissues and result in pain.
  • Sensitivity to cold and heat, as well as any soreness, should go away in a few days.
  • Bite might feel off after the numbness goes away.  If so, please contact the office as soon as possible for a quick follow up adjustment.

If your bite feels uneven, if you have persistent pain, if you have pro-longed sensitivity, or if you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at MirrorDentistry at (780) 489-9809, or email
