Care after Temporary Crown & Temporary Filling

Temporary Crown

Temporary Filling

 Here are a few simple recommendations to prevent complications and make yourself more comfortable after a temporary restoration is placed:

Discomfort; After the tooth has been prepared, you may experience some minor discomfort and sensitivity.  You can help reduce this by taking Advil OR Tylenol every four hours.

Cleaning; Do not floss the temporary crown or filling.  When brushing, be extra gentle with that area. Avoid sticky foods.    

 Dislodged Temporary Crown or Filling: Temporary fillings and crowns occasionally come out because they are meant to be removed easily when the permanent restoration is ready.  If it comes dislodged, call your dental office for a short visit and it will be re cemented or replaced.
