Temporary crowns are just that—temporary, which means that they are fragile and weak and you need to do everything you can to take proper care of them. You should only have to wear the temporary dental crown for a couple of days until your permanent crown is created, and during that time we strongly recommend doing the following things to keep your crown in tip-top shape:
· Avoid eating chewy or sticky foods, like caramel, gum, and hot tamales. These foods and treats can cling to your dental crown and can easily pull it out of place.
· Do your best to shift the bulk of your chewing to the opposite side of your mouth. Chewing could wear your crown out and could also damage it.
· Don’t eat hard foods, like raw vegetables. These foods can harm your crown by breaking or cracking it. They can also knock your crown out of place.
· When flossing on both sides of the crown, slide the floss out of the crevice rather than lifting it out. This will keep you from accidentally pulling the crown off your tooth.
