Get to know the Tomalty Family

“I can’t say enough good things about my experience at Tomalty Dental. It is obvious that they truly care about their patient experience.

I had my first cleaning and, unfortunately, filling this week. It was so easy to book an appointment. They work late and even on Saturdays which is HUGE for professionals who can’t take off work during business hours.

The office is brand new with state of the art equipment and facilities and the staff is super friendly. My cleaning with Andrea was great- quick and very thorough. Dr. Tomalty Tomalty was fantastic– very nice and professional. He explained everything he was doing and took time to review all of my x-rays with me. I always like to know what’s going on, so that was a big plus in my book.

My tolerance for pain is pretty low, but I had absolutely no discomfort whatsoever during my filling. Dr. Tomalty used a different numbing method that doesn’t involve any painful needle pricks. The numbness wore off in less than an hour, so I was able to go right back to work.

Overall, a 5 star experience in every way. I will definitely recommend Tomalty Dental to anyone and everyone!“

After-Care Instructions for Permanent Crowns

If you received anesthesia, do not chew until the numbness has subsided.

  • For the first hour avoid chewing
  • For the first day
    • Avoid eating hard or sticky foods
    • Brush as usual, but floss with care
    • When flossing, remove floss from the side of the tooth
  • To protect your crown, avoid chewing hard objects such as ice.
  • Crowns can be brushed and flossed normally, however, desensitizing toothpaste can be used if teeth are sensitive to cold.
  • Gum soreness is normal for a few days.

Immediate post visit cold sensitivity is also possible.

This is usually from a normal reaction of the nerve following the procedure. Post-op pain should reside after a couple of days, a sensitivity protection toothpaste (i.e. Sensodyne or Crest for Sensitivity) may be used until it subsides.

If sensitivity continues beyond a week or so, or seems to worsen, please call our office. Discontinue the use of any whitening toothpaste or other whitening products until the sensitivity subsides.

Finally, if your bite seems off or if you cannot bite normally please call the office to have your bite adjusted. Do not wait for it to wear down on its own. Let us know if you have any other concerns.
