Home Care After Tooth Extractions
Home Care After Composite Fillings
Where local anesthetic has been used your mouth may feel numb for several hours afterwards. It is best to avoid any hot drinks or chewing while the anesthetic wears off, to prevent biting or burning your tongue, lips and cheeks. In some cases, the injection site might feel a bit tender. Painkillers such as Paracetamol will work effectively to relieve pain and tenderness.
You may chew with your composite fillings as soon as the filling is placed, however, we advise you avoid doing so until the anesthetic is completely worn off.
If your bite feels uneven, if you have persistent pain, or if you have any other questions or concerns, please call us.
Home Care After Crown and Bridge Work
On a rare occasion your temporary crown/bridge might come off. To avoid that happening stay away from sticky, chewy or hard food.
If the temporary crown detaches, get in touch with the surgery, bring the crown/bridge with you so that the dentist can re-cement it. Temporary restorations are important because they protect the teeth from sensitivity as well as keep the teeth in stable balanced position.
You should continue to brush your teeth normally and take care when using dental floss around the temporary restoration.
After crown and bridge procedures, it is normal to feel some mild sensitivity to cold or hot and pressure. This usually subsides after a week or two. If your bite feels uneven after a week of the fitting appointment, or if you have any concerns with your treatment contact our practice.
Home Care After Cosmetic Reconstructions
Be aware that teeth require remineralising and healing after modifying tooth structure and may be sensitive for some time. It will take time to adjust to the new bite and position of the teeth.
