While you’re waiting for your final dental crown to be formed at the dental laboratory, we will provide you with an impermanent dental crown. Because impermanent crowns are not permanent, there are a few things you should do to ensure that they’re staying seated in your mouth, keeping your exposed tooth protected.
One thing we ensure to go over with patients, both those with and without impermanent crowns, is to avert eating sugary and sticky foods like soda, juice and gummy candy. These types of foods and drinks will damage the bare tooth, and in some cases the foods become sticky enough to remove the crown. Overall, sugary foods are very bad for chompers. You can also protect your impermanent crown by foregoing tough foods, which have the effect of unhinging the crown when chomped on, and by chewing less frequently on that side of your oral cavity while you’re waiting for the final crown. Finally, don’t lift floss like you commonly would when flossing, but pull the floss outward instead of up.
Patients living in Chicago, Illinois, and the surrounding areas can phone 773-284-1645 to pencil in appointments with the American Dental Associates team and Dr. Dhiraj Sharma. We’ll be thrilled to see you in our office and work with soon.
