Crown Delivery Pre-Op & Post-Op Instructions
  • The cement is already set and your restoration is ready for immediate use.


  • You may experience some minor discomfort for the first few days following your treatment. This may gradually diminish over time.


  • If you have been given an anesthetic, this should wear off in a few hours. Please be careful not to bite your cheek or your tongue. Also, do not eat or drink anything extremely hot or cold until the numbness has completely worn off.


  • The bite should feel normal when the anesthetic wears off. If it doesn’t, it NEEDS to be adjusted. Please call our office and we will schedule a short appointment. If sensitivity to hot, cold, or biting pressure persists longer than one week, please call our office for a follow-up evaluation by Dr. Rhea Theresa C. Antolin, dentist in Roanoke, TX.


  • Do not chew any extremely hard or crunchy foods, with your new restoration. (Ice, hard candy, etc.). Also, avoid biting anything that can damage your teeth, such as fingernails, paper clips, pens, etc. Anything that can harm a normal tooth can also harm a restoration.


  • We recommend professional maintenance and evaluation at least twice a year unless otherwise advised by Dr. Antolin and Garden Valley team. If you have had a periodontal (gum disease) problem in the past, you should see us up to four times a year.


  • Proper crown delivery post operative care instructions includes BRUSHING and FLOSSING daily. The underlying tooth is still vulnerable to decay. Proper maintenance will not only prolong the life of the new restoration but will also help to prevent problems elsewhere in your mouth.
