what are the symptoms if an individual is possible allergic to the temporary cement used on temporary crowns? I have pain, irritation and nerve pain around area where temp crown was placed, as well as the lip and chin for 28 days.. I have had a steriod pack which releved it but discomfort resumed a few days later. In the past, a temp crown was removed after 5 days of constant pain and area under crown was blistered.
Generally with pain/swelling in the area of a crown, my first initial guess would be a poor fitting temp causing foot entrapment or leaking that is causing the symptoms. The fact that your lips and chin has well though worries me. Have they removed the temp cement at this point in time and replaced it with an alternative? If they have, the symptoms should stop at that time. Otherwise, it may not be an allergic reaction but something else. Perhaps your dentist may want to refer you to a dentist that specializes with pathology of the mouth.
the dentist feels it's not an allergic reaction and has not removed the temp crowns. She has been doing acupuncture. I've had 3 sessions and am scheduled for one more. The problem is not as severe but is still present. I also had 4 implants placed 2 on lower right and 2 on lower left. A bridge was removed and one tooth extracted then temp bridge put on. the implants are not bothering me just the teeth, gums lip and chin around the bridge. I explained to her that I had trouble with the cement in the past. And currently have reactions to any adhesive tapes. She is delaying puting the permanent bridge on until this problem resolves. But, if it is the cement then the problem won't be resolved.
