When Dental Crowns Require Special Treatment

Posted on 1/30/2020 by Ranches Family Dental
When Dental Crowns Require Special TreatmentMany people have dental crowns, but don't know that they need special care. Like our natural teeth, crowns need to be brushed and flossed at least twice a day.

Brushing every day will help deter the bacteria growth that leads to tooth decay and gum disease. However, many people don't know there are certain circumstances where dental crowns need extra care.

When first receiving a crown, your teeth may be a little sensitive. During this time, it's important to protect your crown and avoid certain types of foods. For your comfort, we recommend staying away from foods that are hot and cold. These types of foods will cause you more pain. Fortunately, sensitivity should reach normal levels after a while. It's possible that the sensitivity can stay, and in that case, it's important to call us for help.

Another way to care for your crown it to avoid foods that are hard. While crowns are made of strong materials, depending on the type of crown, they could chip due to eating hard foods. The best way to avoid this is to stay away from hard foods and chewing ice. You may also experience problems if grind your teeth.

Dental Bonding

Occasionally, the dental bonding used to hold your crown to your teeth may become loose. When this happens, you may notice that your crown is loose. You may even be able to wiggle it. It's important to contact us immediately if you notice a loose crown. Many people end up swallowing their crown if it comes loose while they're sleeping. If you spot the problem before that happens, we won't need to make a new crown for you.

If you're interested in getting a crown or more ways to keep them protected, please contact our office. We can help you set up a consultation or give you more information. We would happy to help you in any way possible!
