Dental crowns are strong dental restorations that can repair your tooth and give you the smile you have always wanted. However, there are still some things you need to do on a regular basis to keep your crown in tip-top shape. Those four things are:
· Brush: We strongly recommend that you brush your teeth every morning and every night; however, you are more than welcome to brush more frequently if you desire. As you brush, please use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. Do your best to scrub thoroughly, especially around your dental crown.
· Floss: Floss between each crevice of your tooth at least once a day with a flossing product of your choice. Flossing will free the food particles that are stuck between your teeth. If these particles remain, there is a good chance you will become a victim of tooth decay.
· Rinse: Rinsing is an important task that many people don’t know about. It is generally recommended to rinse your mouth daily with a beneficial mouthwash that will deeply clean your smile and will nourish and strengthen your teeth. Rinsing your mouth will keep your crown in great condition.
· Visit the dentist: Make sure you visit the dentist every six months for a professional cleaning and exam. These appointments will help you prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and other dental problems, and they will also give our dental team a chance to check on your dental crown.
These four tricks are vital for a strong and stable dental crown.
