Can I brush my temporary crown?
Brush along the gumline on both sides of your temporary crown to remove plaque and food debris. Floss around your temporary crown BUT slide it out to the side when complete. Do NOT pull floss toward the chewing surface as you may inadvertently dislodge the temporary crown.

Can you eat chips with a temporary crown?
Your temporary crown is glued in with temporary cement. It should be fully functional, so you can chew normally. However, because the glue isn’t meant to hold the tooth in place permanently, it’s best to avoid chewing on hard, tough, or sticky foods. It’s also a good idea to avoid sugary foods.
Why do temporary crowns hurt?
If the tooth that has been crowned still has a nerve in it, you may experience some heat and cold sensitivity. Your dentist may recommend that you brush teeth with toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth. Pain or sensitivity that occurs when you bite down usually means that the crown is too high on the tooth.
