crown bridge care instructions grand rapids mi dental

Proper home care is very important, so please read the following information. Please treat your permanent dental crown with care for the next 24 hours. Be sure to avoid both hard and sticky foods. Also, our Grand Rapids dentists ask that you please wait at least one full day before flossing.


Having a crown placed is a fairly intensive procedure for your teeth and there is always healing time involved. Tooth sensitivity to temperatures and when biting down are expected for several weeks, possibly even up to several months. Please expect there to be a period of healing. Taking ibuprofen or Tylenol as needed may help alleviate these symptoms.


If you experience constant, spontaneous, throbbing tooth pain with or without swelling, please give one of our offices a call IMMEDIATELY.

Be sure to also contact our dentists if your bite feels abnormal, drastically different than before, or if the new dental crown is causing issues with your mouth closing normally.
