You know that there are several things you may need to do if you’re interested in keeping your teeth clean. For instance, you probably know that you should brush and floss your teeth regularly and schedule routine visits with our dentist. You should also remember to have damaged teeth repaired as quickly as you can. If you don’t, you may have to deal with a number of serious consequences. Crowns are one option you may need to consider if your teeth are injured.
However, before a crown is placed, you could need to have a temporary crown placed since it can take two weeks for your crown to be made. Temporary crowns are useful because they can help you adjust to having a crown. Temporary crowns can also help you speak and chew comfortably again. A temporary crown can also stop plaque and bacteria from reaching the center of your tooth, which can be uncomfortable.
You’ll also have to keep your temporary crown clean by brushing and flossing. When you’re cleaning your teeth, please be careful with your gums. If you don’t you could actually damage your gums.
