  1. After a root canal, you can’t eat for 30 to 45 minutes to give your temporary filling enough time to properly firm. 
  2. However, it's usually advised that patients wait to eat until after the anesthesia wears off to avoid biting their cheeks or tongue. 
  3. To maintain the region clear of food particles and plaque, be sure to brush and floss often.
  4. You should also consult with your dentist regarding what you can eat and what you should avoid after your root canal.
