Our team at [practice_name] cares for you and your smile, and we want you to have the best dental experience possible. However, sometimes the treatment time is delayed because our team needs to make a customized dental restoration for you.
If you are repairing your smile with a dental crown, there will be a time when you need to wear a temporary crown until your permanent restoration is created. So, while you wear your temporary crown, we recommend doing the following things:
· Avoid eating sticky, chewy foods. If you eat these foods, like gummy bears, hot tamales, etc., there is a high chance that the product will grab onto your dental crown and will pull it off your tooth.
· Try not to use the temporary crown very much. You can minimize use by chewing the majority of the time on the opposite side of your mouth.
· Do your best to avoid eating hard foods, like raw vegetables. These foods can dislodge the temporary crown and can also crack and break it.
· When you floss, slide the string out from the crevice between your teeth instead of pulling it out. Pulling the floss out could result in the removal of the crown because it could easily catch the edge and pull it out of place.
These tips are to help you care for your temporary crown so you don’t run into any complications or additional problems. If you have any questions or if you need to talk to Dr. [doctor_name] about the details of your treatment, call our office today at [phone] and schedule an appointment. We look forward to working with you!
