You probably understand that getting a dental crown can help you deal with a number of issues, but had you heard that you could need to have a temporary crown placed before we place a permanent crown? While these are only temporary solution, they offer several benefits.
You see, if you have an injured tooth, your other teeth might actually shift. This can ruin orthodontic work you’ve had done. Temporary crowns can stop your teeth will shifting and will stop bacteria and plaque from reaching the center of your pearly white. These temporary solutions could also help you avoid pain and discomfort and allow you to speak and chew comfortably.
Temporary crowns don’t require a lot of upkeep, but there are a few things you’ll need to do. You can usually care for your crown like you would any of your existing teeth, but remember to floss carefully if your gums aren’t covering your pearly whites. We also suggest avoiding sticky or hard foods, including popcorn, peanut butter and nuts, since they can damage, crack, or even dislodge a crown.
