Swelling after provisional crown: Removal of temp crown best solution?

Last Updated December 13, 2016

I placed a provisional crown in the lower 2nd molar position 4 days ago to develop the emergence profile for an implant placed 6 months ago. A lot of pressure is on the surrounding tissues as only soft tissue relief was provided with an incision. The patient is now in pain and reports feeling like there is a large cheek swelling, which I have not confirmed visually. Unfortunately circumstance means I can’t see the patient for some time. Is removing the temporary crown the only solution to reduce any potential swelling? The patient is only able to access over the counter medications.
