Your new dental crown is strong, reliable, and beautiful. It finally gives you the healthy, functional, and attractive smile you’ve always wanted. To maintain this appearance and health, it’s important to do all you can to take good care of your dental crown. Luckily, doing so is just like caring for your other teeth. To explain a little more, Dr. Boyle, Dr. Boyle, and our dental team have some dental crown care tips for you.
First, you need to clean your crown regularly. You should brush twice a day, floss once a day, and rinse daily. As you do so, make sure you use tools that have been approved by the American Dental Association. Remember to also brush with a soft-bristled toothbrush.
Second, visit our dentists every six months for a routine checkup. At this appointment, our dental team can examine your dental crown, deeply clean it, and make sure it’s in pristine condition. This will also give you a chance to ask questions if necessary.
Third, try not to chew with the crown when it’s first placed in your mouth. It’s also recommended to be careful when chewing sticky foods. This is because these foods can pry the crown loose.
