Avoid Hard Foods

While we do condone adhering to a healthy diet, we understand that circumstances may occur. As a result of these circumstances, we advise that you do your best to avoid chewing on hard foods like ice. Finally, we don’t recommend using your teeth to bite on other nonfood items like pens and pencils.

Regular Checkups

Regular checkups and cleanings are crucial to help ensure that your dental crown is functioning properly.

Oral Hygiene

Proper personal oral hygiene is a must in both life and dental health. Having healthy oral care habits is the best at-home way to get rid of plaque and bacteria to keep your crown looking good and working well. We recommend keeping an eye out for products that have the ADA Seal of Acceptance and use them. They tend to prove your best option since they meet the ADA’s standards for effectiveness and safety for dental care at home.
