Hello doctor,

I got three temporary crowns in the front top teeth in the last week. The two middle teeth and one on to the right. The one on the left is perfectly fine and only took about 15 minutes to make and put in my mouth. The other two had difficulties when being made. Along with this, a couple of cords, or what looks like cords are hanging loose on the right middle and the one next to it. It feels sensitive and hurts. This is something that I am worried about and I have read multiple websites stating that my dentist was supposed to take these cords out before cementing the temporary crowns. What do I do?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have read through your complaint and the relevant details. Ideally, the permanent crowns usually fixed does not come with any cords. I assume that those are the temporary ones which you have in the mouth at the moment (with a clue that you said it took only 15 minutes to make one of it). Moreover, if that is the case then those cords should the splints which are placed to stabilize the crowns in place for a good reason.

You have also not mentioned for what reason have you got the crowns for your teeth. It would be of much help if you can send a picture of the same so that I can arrive at a better treatment plan.

Coming to the sensitivity, you shall use Sensodyne rapid relief toothpaste to replace your regular toothpaste at the night and it helps you greatly.

I hope this helps.
