Home After Care - Crowns
After receiving your new crown, make sure you take care of it by following these simple directions:
Avoid eating anything for an hour or more to allow the bonding agent to set.
If an anesthetic was used to perform your procedure, try not to chew any food or gum until the numbness has ended.
Your brushing and flossing routine should be as usual.
If your teeth are sensitive, try using a toothpaste for sensitive teeth.
Take your medications or antibiotics (if prescribed) as stated.
Rinse your mouth with salt water 3 times a day to reduce swelling.
You will most likely have discomfort for a few days after your procedure, however if your crown feels crooked, comes off or your sensitivity/pain increases, please call our office with your concerns.
