Proper home care is very important, so please read the following information. Please treat your permanent dental crown with care for the next 24 hours. Be sure to avoid both hard and sticky foods. Also, our Hudsonville dentists recommend that you wait at least one full day before flossing. WHAT TO EXPECT: Having a crown placed is a fairly intensive procedure for your teeth and there is always healing time involved. Some tooth sensitivity to temperatures and when biting down are expected for several weeks, possibly even up to several months. Please expect there to be a period of healing. Ibuprofen or Tylenol may help alleviate these symptoms. WHEN TO CALL US: If you experience constant, spontaneous, throbbing tooth pain with or without swelling, please give our office a call IMMEDIATELY. Please also contact our dentists if your bite feels abnormal, drastically different than before, or if the new dental crown is causing issues with your mouth closing normally.
