The keyword here is “temporary”. Since temporary dental crowns are not intended to be a permanent solution, they need some extra care. Below are some tips for caring for your temporary crown.
- Stay away from sticky foods that can pull a temporary crown out of place.
- Use caution with hard foods that could break the crown if you bite down on them.
- Chew more on the opposite side of your mouth. We know it feels awkward but it helps prevent the crown from loosening.
If you have a temporary crown and it becomes loose, contact your dentist to put it back in place.
