Dental Crown Aftercare
Once your dental crown is in place, it is important to maintain proper care of your teeth. While a crown has restored a tooth, it doesn’t mean the tooth is indestructible. With proper care, a good quality crown can last up to eight or more years. Remember to brush and floss the area of the crown daily to avoid excess plaque buildup or collection of debris around the restoration.
It is also important to pay attention to other behaviors that might damage the dental crown. These behaviors often include jaw clenching or bruxism (teeth grinding). Try to avoid eating brittle foods, ice or hard candy as well. In doing so, the adhesion of the crown can be compromised or damaged.
What are Dental Bridges?
Dental Bridges are natural-looking appliances that can fill in the gap caused by missing teeth. Simply put, bridges are natural-looking, custom-made, and barely noticeable teeth replacements. By utilizing dental bridges in Las Vegas, we can not only restore your smile by replacing missing teeth, but we will also be providing a more natural appearance and an improved proper bite relationship between your upper and lower teeth.
Proper care of your dental bridges will allow your new dental restoration to last for 10 years or longer. This means brushing and flossing daily like you would with your natural teeth. In addition to daily care, it is important to maintain regular visits to Dr. Bell for proper care and cleanings.
