Your new dental crown is strong and reliable; however, that doesn’t mean it’s invulnerable to dental issues. In fact, if you’re not careful, there are some things that can harm your crown and the abutment within. This is why it’s best to take very good care of your dental crown in Hempstead, New York. That way you can avoid gum disease, tooth fractures, and more. To help you keep your crown in tip-top shape, our dental team has some tips for you.
First, stay committed to your oral hygiene routine. This will keep your crown clean and pristine. Your routine should consist of brushing twice a day, flossing once a day, and rinsing daily. As you do so, make sure you use a soft-bristled toothbrush as well as products that have been approved by the American Dental Association.
Second, visit Bertha D. Bravo, Dentist PC every six months for a dental cleaning and exam. At your visit, our dental team will inspect your crown, clean it, and make sure it’s in tip-top shape. This will also give you a chance to voice your concerns and ask questions if you have any.
Third, be cautious as you chew with the crown when it’s first placed in your mouth. You shouldn’t have to worry about this once a few days have passed. It’s also recommended to avoid chewing sticky foods with the crown because the suction can loosen the crown as well as pull it off the tooth.
If you follow our instructions and do what you can for your dental crown, there is a good chance it will remain strong and successful so you can have a top-notch oral health and smile.
