Oral Care Tips for Your Dental Crowns
In order to prevent damage of your dental crowns avoid chewing sticky foods, hard food or hard objects such as ice. Do not use your teeth as a tool. Regardless of visiting your dentists regularly and brushing twice a day, cleaning between your teeth is vital. Use floss or other dental cleaners to remove plaque from the crown area, because plaque remains can cause dental decay and periodontal disease.
