Instructions After Crown or Bridge Temporaries

  • Do not eat sticky foods or anything hard that could pull off or fracture the temporary.

  • Only floss your temporary crown or bridge as you were shown at your appointment.

  • Do not eat or drink for 1 1/2 hours after the appointment today.

  • Some soreness of the gums and tooth is normal 1-3 days.  Take Ibuprofen product as needed (400 mg every 4 hours not to exceed 2400 mg per day) if your medical doctor permits you to take these medications.

  • For additional pain relief, you may alternate Ibuprofen and regular strength Tylenol every 4 hours. Do not take Aspirin products.
