Be careful when cleaning around the temporary restoration. Do not pull up on the temporary crown when flossing this area. Make sure to brush this area gently and not to chew any hard foods on the restoration.
Sensitivity to hot and cold is to be expected following treatment. Avoid extremely hot or cold foods and beverages for the first few days. It is normal to have discomfort in the gums and around the tooth after the anesthesia wears off. If you feel discomfort in the gum tissue, rinse the area with warm salt water. You can also take an Advil or Tylenol if the discomfort persists.
After the final restoration is place, your bite may feel different. This is your mouth adjusting to the new crown. If it still feels off in a few days, please call the office for a slight adjustment.
It is important to resume regular brushing and flossing immediately. A consistent daily home care routine will increase the longevity of the restoration.
