care for crown grand rapids mi dentist

Proper home care is very important, so please read the following information. Please treat your permanent crown with care for the next 24 hours. Be sure to avoid both HARD and STICKY FOODS. Wait one full day before flossing.


Having a crown done is MAJOR surgery for your teeth and there is always healing time involved. Sensitivity to temperatures and biting is expected for several weeks, or even up to several months. Please expect there to be a period of healing. Ibuprofen or Tylenol may help alleviate these symptoms.


If you experience constant, spontaneous, throbbing pain with or without swelling, please give our office a call IMMEDIATELY.

If your bite feels abnormal or drastically different than before or if the crown is causing issues with your mouth closing normally, please give our office a call.
