Dental Crowns, Dental Bridges, Inlays and Onlays

Your dentist will place temporary restorations before your permanent restorations are fabricated.

Contact our dental clinic in Calgary if you have any issues with your temporary restorations.

Sensitivity to temperature and soreness should dissipate over a couple of days.

During the first few days, be sure to brush and floss gently.

Tooth sensitivity to temperature (hot and cold) will soon subside.

Refrain from chewing or eating until you are no longer numb to avoid accidentally injuring your tongue or cheeks.

Follow your regular brushing and flossing routine.

Acclimating to dentures requires patience. Practice reading to others or to yourself for a couple of minutes daily to become more comfortable with your speech. This process will take some time.

Remove your dentures before you sleep and soak them in a container filled with cool water or denture cleaner.

Precisely clean your dentures before inserting them back into your mouth.

  • Use the gauze pad to apply pressure on the extraction site for one-hour post-surgery.
