Is it safe to brush and floss the night of getting a permanent crown put in?

The dentist said I should probably stay away from the area for the day but what about the rest of the mouth?

    Safe to brush from side to side to clean the crown and nearby teeth. Wait 48 hours to floss on either side of the new crown.

    (I just got a crown a month ago.)
