Have you recently restored your tooth with a dental crown restoration? If so, good for you! Dental crowns are strong, reliable restorations that can help you in a myriad of ways. To help you keep your crown in tip-top shape, our dentist, Dr. Dawn A. Wu, recommends doing the following things:
-Brush: Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste to brush your dental crown (as well as all your other teeth) every morning and night. Brushing can remove the plaque and bacteria from around the crown to help you prevent gum disease and to keep the crown in top-notch condition.
-Floss: Use a product that is easy to use to floss around the dental crown (don’t forget to floss along the gumline). Flossing is very important because it removes the plaque and bacteria that reside between the teeth. This can help you keep your crown healthy and strong.
-Visit your dentist: It’s important to attend your six-month checkups so our dental team can remove any plaque or tartar around your dental crown and so we can make sure your restoration is still in tip-top shape.
