Temporary Crowns

After receiving your temporary crown, make sure you take care of it by following these simple directions:

  • Avoid eating anything for an hour or more to allow the bonding agent to set.
  • Avoid eating foods that will stick or cause you to chew hard, or use the other side of your mouth to chew.
  • If an anesthetic was used to perform your procedure, try not to chew any food or gum until the numbness has ended.
  • Carefully brush to keep it clean.
  • Take your medications or antibiotics (if prescribed) as stated.
  • Rinse your mouth with salt water 3 times a day to reduce swelling.

You will most likely have discomfort for a few days after your procedure, however if your temporary crown feels crooked, comes off or your sensitivity/pain increases, please call our office with your concerns.
