A dental crown in Puyallup, Washington, is strong and reliable, but it can’t withstand everything. This is why it’s important for you to take good care of your crown and keep it in tip-top shape on a regular basis. To help you do so, our PR Cosmetic and General Dentistry team encourages you to do the following things:
-Keep up on oral hygiene: Make sure you brush your teeth twice a day, floss your teeth once a day, and rinse your mouth daily with mouthwash. As you brush, use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. As you floss, use a product that can slide easily into place. As you rinse, use antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash. Make sure every oral hygiene tool you use has been approved by the American Dental Association.
-Visit your dentist: For a top-notch dental crown, you need to visit your dentist, Dr. Paul Roe, every six months for a routine dental cleaning and checkup. During this appointment, he will examine your dental crown and fix any issues if necessary.
-Be careful while chewing: As you chew your food throughout the day, it’s best to be careful when you chew on the side of the mouth where the crown lies, at least when you first get the crown. It’s best to avoid chewing sticky and hard foods on that side altogether.
If you do these things, you’ll be off to a great start! For more information and details, please call us at 253-435-0333 at your earliest convenience. We’re thrilled to give you the tips you need to succeed with your dental crown!
