From time to time, we all may need to replace damaged teeth with crowns. Here is some good advice from the doctors at Antoine Dental Center about this procedure, what to expect, and how it works.
Crowns and bridges generally take two to three appointments to complete. On the first appointment, impressions are taken, and a temporary crown is put in place. The temporary is usually made of plastic-based material or soft metal. If it breaks or falls off, call the doctors at Antoine Dental immediately. Do not chew sticky or hard food and be careful flossing to avoid these problems.
Whenever anesthesia is used, the doctors suggest you avoid chewing until the numbness has worn off.
After the permanent restoration is placed, you may feel slight pressure for a few days, and your bite may feel different for a day or two. If these irritations persist, call the doctors at Antoine Dental. Delaying necessary adjustments may damage the tooth permanently.
