Temporary Crowns

If your temporary crown should come off before you scheduled apt, it is ok to wait until the next business day to call to have it re-cemented.

Vasoline can be placed inside the temporary crown and it can be placed back on the tooth to keep it covered up until you have it recemented.  It is important to keep the temporary crown on the tooth if possible to prevent the tooth from shifting and to minimize sensitivity.

Avoiding hard and sticky foods can help prevent the crown from coming loose and remember to pull the dental floss out through the side instead of popping it back up while the temporary crown is in place.
