TEMPORARY CEMENTATION


Until the permanent porcelain teeth are ready, we recommend using a temporary ones. The next step is a temporary cementation of the permanent porcelain teeth. This trial period plays an important part in getting accustomed with the new porcelain teeth.

While the permanent restorative pieces are in the stage of temporary cementation, we recommend you pay attention to the following aspects:
  • Is food getting stuck between the work and teeth?
  • Is the piece too tall?
  • Does it exert any pressure or cause discomfort at the gum level?
  • Are you able to chew?
  • Does it prevent certain movements of the cheek bone?
  • Are you satisfied with the shape and colour?
  • Don’t worry, the cementation of dental restorative pieces is only temporary. Avoid chewing for at least one hour following the temporary cementation. If a local anesthetic was administered, wait until it disappears completely. Avoid sticky or hard food, because it can get stuck to the restorative piece. Chew carefully, because the restorative pieces can come loose and you are in danger of swallowing it with the food. Pay close attention to the chewing process. You can brush the temporary cemented restorative piece in the same way you did before. Avoid using dental floss.

    PERMANENT CEMENTATION

  • Avoid eating for three hours following permanent cementation.
  • If a local anesthetic was administered, wait until it disappears completely.
  • Following permanent cementation, it is not unusual to feel a slight tension on the teeth or discomfort at the level of gums. You might need a pain killer (e.g. Algocalmin). This discomfort will fade away during the accommodation period. If the sensation persists, please get in touch with us. Hygienization does not require extraordinary procedures. Use toothpaste and dental floss.
  • This discomfort will give in period of adjustment to the new dental work. If unpleasant sensations persist for several days, please contact us.
  • Sanitation can be done normal or using dental works, still need to use mouthwash and floss.
  • Depending on your specific situation, the doctor or hygienist can recommend other mouth sanitation aids, that you can practice first in cabinet.
  • You should avoid hard or sticky food and chewing gum, becasue it can stick to dental work. Chewing should be done with caution because in first period it can come off, and you can swallow it with food. Do not eat reflexively, as we do routinely, but awaken the action.

    Brushing provisional cemented area (whether permanent or temporary) should be done normally. Avoid flossing, because it can take out all work.

    It is normal if small areas of this temporary cementations will fracture or will come off. In that case, please contact us. If you are out of town, you can use adhesives for dentures to re-cement it.


    Once you finally cemented a ceramic work, you will benefit from all the advantages of ceramics, it's aesthetics and resistance. But ceramics (just like a natural tooth) is sensitive to thermal shock (sudden temperature differences), mechanical shock (sudden and powerful bite), food with surprises (like nutshell or pebbles in food). Try to avoid thermal and mechanical shocks, protecting both: prosthetic and natural teeth.


    After the final cementing you will be called to the clinic for regular checks of the work and its sanitization.

    Prosthetic has a three year warranty, but if you want, it is possible to extend surcharge guarantee.

    Remember that all regular checks of 6 in 6 months after final cementation are free!


    PORCELAIN TEETH ON IMPLANTS -LONG TERM TEMPORARY CEMENTATION

    We recommend a temporary cimentation with long term special cement. It is both flexible and resistant. It is important that the cement is flexible in order to avoid initial shocks on the implants and to ensure that the restorative piece doesn’t come off too quickly. If you are not leaving the country, we recommend long term temporary cementation so we can remove it for sanitization.

    Periodic hygienization of restorative pieces on implants resembles maintaining the health of bone and gums around implants.

    We recommend any patient with restorative pieces on implants to avoid mechanical shocks exerted by strong mastication movements. Moreover, it is advisable that you do not put pressure while eating on the implant areas in order to ensure the gradual adaptation of all structures involved in the process (gums, bones). At the end of the adaptation period, you will be able to chew normally.
