Crowns Bridgeport CT
For complete care of crowns/bridges it takes about two to four visits with the dentist. The first visit is when the teeth are ready and the molds for the mouth are made. Temporary crowns or bridges are made to protect the teeth while the custom-made restoration is completed. Anesthesia will numb the lips, roof and tongue. You should not eat anything hot until the numbness has subsided.
You might need to contact us if a temporary restoration is necessary. If it doesn’t work, you can put it back in the same position. If this fails, you can take it to our clinics where our experts will recement it. To avoid movement of other teeth, the temporary must be fixed at the same place. This will prevent the final restoration from shifting.
To avoid sticky and hard food, you should chew the temporary on the other side. Brushing can be done in the same way as usual, but flossing must be taken extra care. The floss should be pulled towards the temporary side and not into the contact space.
Normal symptoms include temperature and pressure sensitivities. These should disappear after the final restoration has been completed. Only use the pain medication prescribed by your doctor. Consult your dentist if there is persistent pain or another problem.
