TAKING PRECAUTIONS WITH YOUR NEW TEETH

TAKING PRECAUTIONS WITH YOUR NEW TEETH

Taking precautions with your new dental crown.

At this point, your dentist may give you some instructions. For example, with some types of cement it's best to take it easy with the crown for the first day (eat nothing exceptionally hard or sticky), so to give the cement an adequate time period over which to cure.

Especially in the case where you have been numbed up, be careful until normal sensation has returned. You could easily bite your lip or cheek by accident, possibly severely.

Once your numbness has worn off, and for the next day or so, gently test the "bite" of your crown so to make sure that it feels right with all types of closing movements. If it doesn't, let your dentist know so they can correct the problem (a simple matter of buffing down the surface of the crown). 

 

Because as dental tourists, you cant simply return if theres a problem, then we suggest that you stay an extra few days after the teeth are fitted to try and see if there are any problems.

You should allow for a simple crown at least one week stay, with up to 3 visits to the clinic.
