Temporary Crowns IN Calgary NW, AB

Emergency Dentist for Temporary Crowns

At Peak Dental Group, we understand that dental restorations sometimes require multiple appointments to ensure optimal results. Temporary crowns play a crucial role in this process, providing protection and functionality while you await your permanent crown. Here's everything you need to know about temporary crowns and their importance in your dental care journey.

When Are Temporary Crowns Needed?

Temporary crowns are typically required in the following situations:

  • Protecting a Tooth After Preparation: When a tooth has been prepared for a permanent crown, it needs protection until the final crown is ready. A temporary crown covers the prepared tooth, preventing sensitivity and damage.
  • Maintaining Tooth Function: Temporary crowns allow you to continue using the tooth for eating and speaking without discomfort or further damage.
  • Preserving Gum Health: They help maintain the position of the gums around the tooth, ensuring the final crown fits perfectly and looks natural.
  • Preventing Shifting of Teeth: Temporary crowns keep the surrounding teeth from shifting into the space of the prepared tooth, which is crucial for the proper fit of the permanent crown.

How Long Do You Need to Wear a Temporary Crown?

The duration of wearing a temporary crown varies depending on your specific treatment plan. Generally, patients wear temporary crowns for a few weeks, typically between 2 and 4 weeks, while the permanent crown is being fabricated in a dental laboratory. During this period, it's essential to take good care of your temporary crown to avoid any complications.

When to Call for an Appointment

While temporary crowns are designed to be durable, there are instances where you may need to contact Peak Dental Group for assistance:

  • Crown Feels Loose or Falls Out: If your temporary crown becomes loose or falls out, it's crucial to schedule an appointment as soon as possible to prevent damage to the prepared tooth.
  • Persistent Pain or Sensitivity: Some discomfort is normal after getting a temporary crown, but if you experience persistent pain or sensitivity, it may indicate an issue that needs professional attention.
  • Difficulty in Biting or Chewing: If you notice any problems with your bite or chewing, it could mean the temporary crown needs adjustment.
  • Damage to the Temporary Crown: Chips, cracks, or other damage to the temporary crown should be addressed promptly to maintain the tooth's protection.
