Re: gums inflamed around temp. crown
I had the same problems with a permanent crown, lots of pain and bleeding when I flossed. For two weeks, the dental office told me to put up with it, it would die down. Finally I walked in the office and the dentist took one look at it and told me I would get a replacement without cost. Sometimes the crowns just aren't exactly perfect and if not, the problems are immediate and acute.
I give my dentist his due for being honest, though looking back, that should have been a really sign that I should have moved on after the replacement. He just wasn't a great dentist.
