After a root canal do I need a follow up?,

Should I have a follow up after my root canal? How long after it should I go back?

You should have a followup x-ray six months to a year after a root canal is completed. Also you should get a crown on the tooth ASAP to prevent it from cracking.
Normally, you would want to follow up with your dentist following a root canal, assuming a specialist did the root canal. Most of the time, the tooth requires a crown following root canal treatment. It is always a good idea to have periodic follow-ups (most of the time during your 6 month cleaning appointment).
Yes. It is critical that one follows up with the dentist after any root canal procedure. The dentist needs to check that the tooth is healing properly.
