Dental Crown: After Treatment Care Tips

There are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to caring for your new temporary or permanent crown after treatment. One of the first things to keep in mind if you had any numbing agents used is to be careful that you don’t bite yourself. You could hurt yourself without even realizing it. You also want to avoid eating any sticky candy or hard foods, especially with a temporary crown. You’ll want to wait until your permanent crown is firmly in place before tackling these types of foods. Be sure to call if you feel as though your crown has moved or feels loose in your mouth. Some sensitivity is normal after the procedure. Handle your regular dental care with brushing as always, but be careful with flossing. Finally, remember that your dental professional is only a phone call away if you have questions or concerns.
