Do you have a dental crown restoring the health and function of your tooth? If so, you need to do all you can to keep your restoration in tip-top shape. That way you can have a dental crown that can give you the top-notch smile you need for many years. Our dentist, Dr. Don Wyatt, encourages you to care for your dental crown by doing the following things:
-Brush: Scrub your dental crown every morning and night with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. This goes without saying, but please brush the rest of your teeth as well. Brushing can help remove plaque and other harmful substances from the restoration.
-Floss: Floss your crown once a day with a product of your choice. Flossing can help you remove the harmful substances from each side of the crown as well as along the gums.
-Visit your dentist: It’s vital to attend your routine dental checkups every six months. When you come to our office, our dental team will deeply clean your teeth and crown. This can help remove the stubborn and dangerous substances (like tartar) from around your crown. It will also allow us to check your crown to make sure it’s in tip-top shape.
