Care Instructions for Permanent Crowns

If you received anesthesia, do not chew until the numbness has subsided.  
For the first hour avoid chewing in order for the cement to fully set.
Avoid eating hard or sticky foods 

Brush as usual, but floss with care

When flossing, Gently pull floss through instead of pulling up/down to remove.
To protect your crown, avoid chewing hard substances such as ice.
Crowns can be brushed and flossed normally, but a desensitizing toothpaste can be used if teeth are sensitive to cold.
Gum soreness is normal for a few days.
Immediate post visit cold sensitivity is also possible.
This is usually from a normal reaction of the nerve following the procedure. Give it a couple of days and try a sensitivity protection toothpaste (i.e. Sensodyne or Crest for Sensitivity) until it subsides.
If it continues beyond a week (or so) or seems to worsen, please call our office. Discontinue the use of any whitening toothpaste or other whitening products until the sensitivity subsides.
Finally, if your bite seems off or if you cannot bite normally, please call the office to have your bite adjusted. Do not wait for it to wear down on its own.  Let us know if you have any other concerns

Care Instructions for Temporary Crowns

If you received anesthesia, do not chew until the numbness has subsided.
Avoid chewing for at least an hour. Avoid eating hard or sticky foods, such as chewing gum, and chew on the opposite side of the mouth if possible. Brush as usual, but floss with care. When flossing, gently pull floss thru instead of pulling down to remove it. Use a desensitizing toothpaste, like Sensodyne, if teeth are sensitive to heat, cold, or pressure, but contact our office if sensitivity increases or persists beyond a few days.  Contact us if the crown comes off, and save it so that it can be recemented.  It is important that the temporary crown stay in place to ensure the proper fit of the permanent crown.
If you have any discomfort:
Medications including antibiotics should be taken only as directed. Rinse mouth three times a day with warm water to which one teaspoon of salt has been added.
Call us at 317.598.GRIN (4746) if your bite feels uneven, if you have persistent sensitivity or discomfort, or if you have any other concerns
