Keeping Your Crowns Healthy and Intact
Posted on 3/23/2017 by Dr Wael Garine
Dental crowns are restorations used to strengthen and protect a damaged or weak tooth. They are also used to anchor dental bridges in place or cap a tooth that has undergone a root canal treatment. Crowns are usually made of ceramic, which can be perfectly matched to the color of your natural teeth, and are custom created from molds of your mouth. While strong, crowns are not indestructible, and care should be taken to keep them healthy and intact. How Does a Crown Get Damaged?There are several factors that can cause damage to your dental crown: Diet While a crown can withstand normal biting and chewing forces, it is not invincible. You can eat most of the regular foods you used to eat, but there are a few things you should avoid. Stay away from eating anything exceptionally hard, such as ice. Be careful if you eat popcorn. And avoid foods that are very sticky, like caramels, as they can cause the crown to become dislodged. Treat BruxismBruxism has no one specific cause. It can be the result of stress, poor tooth alignment, excessive drinking, certain medications, or sleep issues. Speak with your dentist to find the cause of your bruxism and treat it. A night guard can also help while you sleep, as it provides a cushion between your upper and lower teeth, preventing the pressure on the crown. Oral HygieneA crown cannot suffer from tooth decay, but it can harbor plaque and bacteria. It is important to continue a normal oral hygiene routine of brushing at least twice a day and flossing daily. You should also be sure to visit your dentist regularly for cleanings and exams. With the right care, keeping your crown healthy and intact will not be a difficult task, and it will last you many years, if not an entire lifetime. However,contact our officeright away if you notice that it has come loose, looks cracked or has fallen out....
