The success of your treatment is of the utmost importance to all of us. Therefore, it is vital that you are aware of the care and maintenance that is required for your temporaries to remain functional and in good condition while you wear them.
Your temporaries are a short-term protective restoration fabricated from an acrylic material. We ask that you take special precautions while you wear them. Temporaries are cemented with a temporary cement which is intentionally a weaker cement.
Avoid these foods while wearing temporaries :
Occasionally, even with careful wearing, temporaries will become loose. This is normally not an emergency. The tooth will not become infected or decayed if the temporary is missing for a short period of time. However, the underlying tooth may feel sensitive to food and drink.
If your temporary dislodges and you are unable to seek immediate dental care...
Feel free to call, email, or use our contact form.
