Instructions for your New Filling
- Your mouth will be numb for awhile. Average time is two hours but can range from one to five hours.
- Be careful not to pinch, hit or bite your cheek, lips, or tongue while they are numb. If you do, they can be quite sore later.
- Avoid chewing while you are numb. Take liquids and foods that can be eaten without chewing.
- White fillings can be flossed at any time
