I just had a root canal done a few hours ago and the temporary filling has fallen out along with a tiny bit of bloody cotton does this require immediate attention??

  • If there is cotton then that means the root canal is not completed and you have to have other sittings also. If the temporary filling has come out then cavity is open and it can cause the infection. It is not a emergency but you have to contact the dentist and tell him. Till then don't eat anything from that side and keep the area clean. If needed you dentist will give you another dressing .For more info on root canal treatment you can visit the following link on our website...
