Recovery of Restorative Dentistry: Part 2: Crowns & Bridges

By: Smileway Dental

After undergoing restorative dental treatment with crowns and bridges, patients may experience some sensitivity and discomfort during the post-treatment period. Here are some additional details about these effects:

Sensitivity: It is normal to experience temporary sensitivity in the teeth that have received crowns or bridges. This sensitivity can occur when consuming hot, cold, or sweet foods and beverages. The sensitivity is often a result of the tooth structure being slightly altered during the preparation process for the restorations. It should gradually diminish over time as the teeth adapt to the new restorations. Using toothpaste formulated for sensitive teeth can help alleviate discomfort during this period. It is important to note that if the sensitivity persists or worsens over time, it is recommended to consult with your dentist.

Discomfort: Some patients may experience mild discomfort or tenderness in the treated area after receiving crowns or bridges. This discomfort is usually temporary and can be attributed to the healing process and the adjustment of the teeth to the new restorations. It is most commonly felt when biting or chewing. Over-the-counter pain relievers, such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen, can help manage any temporary discomfort. However, it is important to consult with your dentist before taking any medication and follow their instructions.

Remember, every individual’s experience may vary, and the sensitivity and discomfort levels can differ depending on the complexity of the procedure and the patient’s oral health. It is essential to communicate any concerns or unusual symptoms to your dentist so that they can provide appropriate guidance and ensure your comfort during the recovery period.

Maintaining good oral hygiene practices, following the recommended care instructions provided by your dentist, and attending follow-up visits as scheduled will contribute to a smoother recovery and maximize the long-term success of your crowns and bridges.

I recently had an appointment at Smileway Dental Clinic to address a persistent dental issue that had been causing me considerable discomfort. From the moment I walked in, the atmosphere of the clinic was warm and welcoming, which helped to alleviate some of my anxiety. Dr. Lisa took the time to listen to my concerns and thoroughly explain the procedure to me, which helped to alleviate my fears. Her calming demeanour and gentle approach immediately put me at ease. The surgery itself was surprisingly painless, thanks to Dr. Lisa's expertise and skillful technique. She was incredibly patient and attentive throughout the entire procedure, constantly checking in to make sure I was comfortable and pain-free. Overall, my experience at Smileway Dental Clinic was nothing short of exceptional. Dr. Lisa and her team exceeded my expectations in every way, providing me with top-notch dental care in a compassionate and supportive environment. I highly recommend Smileway Dental Clinic to anyone in need of dental services, especially those who may be anxious or fearful about visiting the dentist.
