Caring for Your Dental Crowns

Ensuring the Longevity of Your Dental Crowns Through Proper Care

Maintaining the health and appearance of dental crowns is key to ensuring their longevity and effectiveness. At Dr. Paul Binon’s practice, serving the Roseville and Sacramento areas, we emphasize the importance of proper care for dental crowns. Here is an in-depth guide on how to maintain your dental crowns, with advice corroborated by reputable American dental associations.

Effective Oral Hygiene Practices

The cornerstone of dental crown care is maintaining rigorous oral hygiene. This means brushing twice daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste, as well as flossing once a day. While the crown itself cannot decay, the tooth underneath it can. Paying special attention to the area where the gum meets the crown is crucial. The American Dental Association provides comprehensive guidelines on effective oral care practices.

Regular Dental Check-Ups and Cleanings

Routine dental visits are essential for the care of your dental crowns. During these visits, professional cleanings are performed, and the condition of your crowns is assessed. These check-ups help in identifying any issues early on and ensuring that your crowns and natural teeth remain in excellent condition. The American Dental Association offers more insights into the importance of regular dental visits.

Avoiding Harmful Habits

Certain habits can be detrimental to the longevity of your dental crowns. It’s advisable to avoid chewing hard foods, ice, or other hard objects, as these can damage the crown. If you have a habit of grinding or clenching your teeth, a condition known as bruxism, it’s important to address this. Dr. Binon might recommend wearing a nightguard to protect both your crowns and natural teeth. The Academy of General Dentistry provides further information on how bruxism can affect dental restorations.

Monitoring Your Dental Crowns

Being mindful of any changes in your dental crowns is important. If you notice any discomfort, loosening, or changes in bite, it’s important to schedule a visit to Dr. Binon’s office. Early detection of issues can prevent more significant problems down the line.

Professional Dental Crown Maintenance

While at-home care is vital, professional maintenance of your dental crowns should not be overlooked. This includes periodic polishing and inspections by Dr. Binon to ensure the crowns remain in optimal condition.
