Question by  tmc1581 (22)

What should I expect for post-crown recovery of my tooth?


Answer by  cindywu (21)

The tooth maybe sensitive to temperature and pressure by biting. If it is just hot and cold sensitive it is better to wait a few weeks and let the tooth settle down but if the tooth is sensitive to pressure then the tooth needs to be adjusted by your dentist.

After a post crown has been put on you will no longer be in pain, your mouth may be sore for a couple cof days and your mouth may be sensitive to hot and cold food. For about two hours after the procedure you should avoid eating so that you do nto bite yourself.

The tooth that has a new crown, and the surrounding teeth, may be sore for the remainder of the day. There should not be any pain by the next day.

A lot of it depends on where you got your crown and what kind of crown you got. There really is no recovery from a crown. It will feel different because it's not your real tooth. It might be a little sensitive, and when you floss you may pull out a little left over glue.

Aside from the pain from the high figure you paid for the crown, you may experience some residual nerve pain, not unlike that of a toothache, though far less severe and treatable with Tylenol or other similar pain relievers. Some swelling of the gums is also to be expected, but will improve rapidly.

You may experience some mild to moderate pain in the area the dentist was working on. This is just from the dentist moving and scraping against your gums, and should subside with some mild pain medicine such as tylenol or motrin.

Your mouth might be numb for a few hours and your mouth and teeth will probably sore and sensitive for a little while.
