If you have had to receive a dental crown at some point, you know that the crown looks and feels very much like your natural teeth. It even acts like a natural tooth. In fact, you can even treat it just like a regular tooth. One of the questions that many people have after they receive the crown from their dentist in Brooklyn is what type of special dental crowns aftercare they need to follow. Once the crown is permanently in place, you will be happy to know that you don’t need to follow too many special tips.
After the Crown Is Placed
As soon as you receive your crown, it should be permanent within the hour. This means that it has cemented into place and it is not going to move when you talk or chew. You can treat it just like it was a part of your natural teeth. Even though the crowns are not likely to stain, this does not mean you should not brush. You will still want to brush them, as well as the gums. In addition, you want to floss regularly – at least once a day. This helps keep the entire mouth healthy.
Many people who want to know more dental crowns aftercare are also concerned over what they can eat. While you can eat anything that you would like, it is a good idea to be careful when you’re chewing foods that are extremely sticky. In some cases, they could dislodge the crown and you would need to have it re-affixed. However, this does not happen often.
