If you have received a dental filling in Renton, Washington, please review our care instructions to ensure that you recover without complications. Call The Renton Dentist at (425) 226-3192 if you have any questions or to make an appointment with our experienced dentist, Dr. Kevin Huynh.

After receiving a dental filling, refrain from eating for at least two hours or until anesthesia has worn off.

You will experience some sensitivity for a few days following treatment. Avoid hot and cold foods and beverages during that time. If your gums are tender, rinse them with warm saltwater (half-teaspoon of salt per 8 ounces of water) or take a mild pain reliever, such as Tylenol or Advil.

Resume regular brushing and flossing immediately to keep your teeth healthy, prevent cavities and ensure the longevity of your dental fillings.
