So tomorrow is the big day for my crown lengthening. I had, what I consider to be, good news. I talked to a dentist in my neighborhood ( not mine) and she said that many times the crown lengthening can be done by making a small single incision rather than having to flap the whole gum. My tooth is intact but a small spot extends above the gum line. I am missing the tooth on both sides of #13. Would that make the procedure any easier or more difficult?a) Is it possible that I may only have to endure a single cut? b) Also, will I feel any pressure during this procedure? How will the pressure compare to an extraction?c) Speaking from a whole body perspective, will this procedure put a lot of stress on my body?
Crown lengthening is a very routine procedure. You will be well numbed up and you won't feel a thing. You probably won't even feel pressure. The only thing you will feel is the pulling of your lip, which is minor. After the procedure they will put stitches around the tooth. Make sure you maintain your oral health in order to prevent any infections and probably will eat soft foods for a couple of days. Don't worry its will be an easy procedure!!
I have felt like I have a little cold but not really a cough or anything. Am I still fine to do this procedure? Thanks for your input I appreciate your advice today!
You will do great during the procedure!! Don't stress out! Its a very easy and straightforward procedure. Bring your earphones and listen to music! It will help you to really relax.
