Dental crowns are great restorations that can improve the health and condition of a worn down, broken, or discolored tooth. However, they are only successful if you take proper care of them. So, to help you maintain the top-notch condition of your dental crown, we recommend doing the following four things:
· Brush: It is strongly recommended that you brush your teeth at least twice a day—every morning and every night. Doing so will clean the plaque and bacteria from your smile, keeping your dental crown free of tooth decay and gum disease.
· Floss: Flossing is one of the most important techniques that is often forgotten or ignored. We ask that you please floss your smile at least once a day so you can clean the harmful particles that were not reached by your toothbrush. Flossing will keep your chompers and your dental crown in great condition.
· Rinse: Rinsing your mouth with mouthwash is a task that many people don’t realize is important. However, it is very important because it can complete the smile-cleaning job and it can eliminate harmful plaque and bacteria that grow in your mouth. So, make sure you rinse with a beneficial wash at least once a day.
· Visit your dentist: Visit your dentist every six months for a professional dental cleaning and exam. These appointments will help you prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and other dental problems. They will also give your dentist the chance to examine your dental crown and make any necessary fixes.
Doing these four tasks will help you have a strong and functional dental crown for years to come. You will be able to eat, talk, and smile normally without anything getting in your way.
