Taking Care of Your Oral Health With Dental Crowns


Posted on 3/1/2024 by Weo Admin

Dental crowns are crucial, especially if you have cosmetic concerns such as discoloration, cracks, or decay on your teeth. These custom-made dental tools are created from different materials, such as ceramic, porcelain, gold, or metal. Although porcelain is the most preferred due to its aesthetic appeal. Once you have crowns installed on your teeth, it is good to know how to maintain your oral health and ensure healthy teeth and gums.

Ensure You Select the Right Toothbrush and Toothpaste


You must be cautious about your oral health when you have crowns or any other dental appliance installed. Ensure you select a soft-bristled brush that is not abrasive on the crowns and safeguards them from damage. Electric toothbrushes are also recommended to thoroughly clean your gums without putting too much pressure. You can also use an interdental brush, which is quite helpful in cleaning around your dental crowns. These brushes are useful as they target areas where a normal toothbrush may fail.

When choosing toothpaste, you need a non-abrasive type that does not scratch the surface of your crown. You must select a toothpaste with friendly components to your crown and one with fluoride, which will help prevent tooth decay.

Be Cautious of the Technique and Frequency


It would help if you brushed your teeth twice every day. Ensure you brush in the morning and before going to bed. You must spend ample time on your teeth to ensure all your teeth are brushed in the right manner. Be conscientious about brushing along your gum line to prevent any accumulation of plaque.

Be Keen on the Crown Edges


The edges of the crown can be a good habitat for plaque accumulation. Ensure you gently brush these edges and keep them cleaned well. Be careful not to clean vigorously, as it may cause tooth abrasion and gum recession.

To ensure aesthetic appeal and longevity of your dental crowns, ensure that you take adequate care of them. For further guidance, contact our office today.
