Post Treatment Instructions- Temporary Crowns
Post-Operative Instructions for Temporary Crowns
Stay away from sticky, tacky, chewy foods.
Stay away from hard foods such as: ice, hard candy, peanuts, popcorn kernels.
If the temporary crown comes off when we are not in the office, place toothpaste or Vaseline inside the temporary and place it back on the tooth. If you have any further problems, call the office.
Try not to floss around the temporary. If you must floss, pull the floss through instead of popping the floss out.
Some sensitivity with the tooth and gums is normal.
Remember, it is important the temporary stays on until the final crown is seated in order to keep the tooth comfortable and prevent other teeth from shifting.
