What is the key to maintaining long-lasting crowns?
Once the crown is fitted and cemented, patients should:
- Maintain excellent oral hygiene by brushing with preferably an electric toothbrush at least twice daily and flossing regularly to remove bacteria. Remember to clean and pay careful attention to where the teeth meet the gum.
- Use fluoride and anti-bacterial mouthwash regularly to contribute to mechanical and chemical plaque removal.
- Avoid chewing on hard food that can break the porcelain and take precautionary steps towards some destructive habits such as grinding by using a night guard.
