Temporary teeth, whether they are dental bridges or crowns are not meant to be permanent. They also serve as a blueprint for the development of the final teeth, allowing adjustments to be made until the shape is correct. Here are several precautions to take note when you have temporary teeth:
- Avoid sticky, chewy foods (for example, chewing gum, toffee, etc.), which could dislodge the bridges.
- Minimize use of the side of your mouth with the temporary teeth. Try to chew more on the other side of your mouth.
- Avoid chewing hard foods (such as nuts, raw vegetables, apples, etc.), which could dislodge and/or break the temporary teeth.
