Post Op Crown Instruction


After placing a crown, we suggest you follow these instructions to ensure a successful result:

Avoid chewing or biting on the either side of your mouth until the anesthetic has worn off, so you don’t do damage to the temporary or chew up your cheek or tongue.

Don’t chew anything hard or crunchy while you have a temporary crown placed.  We also ask that you avoid anything sticky or tacky.  Upon flossing around the temporary, please turn loose of one end of the floss and pull through.  This will insure that your temporary does not come loose.  If your temporary does come off it will need to be re-cemented; please call the office for an appointment.

If the bite feels wrong or uneven, avoid chewing anything on the crown and call us to return to the office as soon as possible. Correcting the bite can take just a few minutes and if left unadjusted can harm your tooth, break the crown or lead to a tooth or jaw ache.

It is normal for your gum tissue to be somewhat sore.  You may also experience a little sensitivity to cold. Both of these symptoms should dissipate over a two week period.
