Flossing requires a bit more strategy when removing the floss from temporary crowns. Do not floss normally which means pulling it up through the contact between the adjoining tooth and the temporary. This time, slowly pull the floss string to the side to slide it out. In other words, do not pull against the temporary crown. You don’t want to irritate the gums and already sensitive area around the temporary crown.
Dentists advise flossing temporary crowns twice a day.
