crowns are wonderful for restoring the look of damaged teeth and
keeping them safe from more damage. Now that you have
your first dental crown in Mundelein,
it’s important to take care of it. The process won’t be as
difficult as many people think. Put these three tips to good use and
that crown will hold up well for a long time.
and Floss Regularly
of the process of caring for the crown is just like the steps needed
to keep your teeth in good shape. Continue to brush after each meal.
If it’s difficult to brush after lunch, at least rinse out your
mouth. This will help keep residue from collecting on and around the
crown. Flossing is also key to protecting the crown. Floss daily.
Make it a part of your morning routine or set aside time for flossing
after the evening meal and before bedtime.
Aware of How the Tooth Reacts to Hot or Cold Beverages
Mundelein residents experience no discomfort when enjoying hot or
cold beverages. Be mindful of how your crowned tooth reacts when you
have something to drink. If you notice that the discomfort is
significant, talk to your dentist. There may be something else that
can be done to ensure the tooth and the dental crown from a Mundelein
dentist don’t cause further distress.
Hard Candies or Chewing Ice Is off the Table
already knew that biting on hard candies or chewing on ice was bad
for your teeth. Now you have another reason to avoid these habits.
Activities like these are rough on any type of dental crown. If you
don’t want to have the crown break down or loosen suddenly, don’t
do either of these things again.
