At this point, the gingiva will be red and inflamed. A clean, dry environment is required to take an accurate impression and fabricate an accurate BruxZir crown. Do not compromise the case by attempting to take the final impression the same day the original dental crown is removed. Instead, temporize the crown preparation using a quality temporary crown to allow time for the tissue to become healthy once again.
Try the temporary dental crown onto the prep. Gently push the temporary crown to place and remove it several times to ensure that it does not become locked into place. Then, adjust the occlusion. Proceed to shape the dental crown, making sure the embrasures are smooth. You may want to slightly over-trim the embrasures and not worry about the “dreaded black triangle” with the temporary crown. The extra space will allow the patient to cleanse debris from the embrasures using Tooth and Gums Tonic without the need for flossing, ensuring that the gingiva stays healthy.
Use LuxaGlaze to give the temporary crown a sealed surface and avoid tissue irritation. Also, be sure to coat the inside of the temporary crown with LuxaTemp Ultra. Avoid using an excessive quantity of dental cement, and have the patient bite together to achieve proper fit. Carefully remove excess cement from the margins without trimming against the tissue. Reappoint the patient for the next portion of the restorative dental procedure.
