How to Care for a New Porcelain Dental Crown
Posted on 1/10/2019 by Dr. Hallas
Getting a new crown means that you can look forward to eating the foods you enjoy again. Whether you needed a new crown because of tooth decay or some trauma to the tooth, having the crown installed will restore the tooth to its normal function. However, once you come home from having the crown installed, you do need to know what to do in order to care for it. A porcelain crown will last you many years if it is properly maintained, so here are a few things to keep in mind. Continue Your Regular Oral Hygiene HabitsJust because your tooth has been capped with a porcelain crown does not mean you can neglect your oral hygiene routine. On the contrary, it is more important than ever that you make sure to care for your teeth. If the tooth that holds the crown experiences further decay, you can actually end up losing the crown. This means you need to make it a point to brush your teeth carefully at least twice per day. Use a brush with soft bristles, and move it in a rounded motion. In addition, you should take care to floss at least once every 24 hours. This will help ensure the longevity of your tooth and the surrounding gum tissue. Consider a Mouthguard at NightMany people with crowns end up ruining them because they clench or grind their teeth when they sleep. If you suffer from bruxism, you may not even be aware of the fact. Come see us and we can tell you whether you should consider a mouthguard when you are sleeping. If you have any questions regarding the care of your new crown, don't hesitate to reach out. We are here to help you, so feel free to call us anytime....
