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.
Excellent experience with amazing results and truly wonderful staff all around! From the moment you walk into the office, you are greeted and the staff make you feel welcome and even calm the nerves. I am always so nervous when visiting dentists and the staff take the time to also explain what you are in for. I went in for a teeth whitening, something I have been so nervous about and Dr. Rhea Antolin is so calming and reassuring about the process. I could not believe how white my teeth were after one session so I decided to come back for another. You will not be disappointed with your results and the entire experience will be smooth and worth it!
Long story short. I’m travel through Texas had an infection in my molar and the pain was all the way up to my ear. The team did an extraction and cleaned it all out in no time at all. Pain free and back on the road.Staff was very specific with instructions for my after care. Staff made my family feel comfortable and kept them at ease with my progress.A+Facility equipment is current and cutting edge. A+Thank you guys so very much.
I just recently started coming to Garden Valley Family & Cosmetic dentistry and they are top notch. Even throughout this whole chaotic pandemic they still seem to get the job done so well while keep us and them safe. Garden Valley really goes the extra mile for their patients. I really recommend coming to them for any dental needs!
