Dos And Don’ts To Protect Your Dental Crowns


Dental crowns are the optimal choice for protecting a vulnerable tooth and adding structural support to it.

Teeth that have received crowns are never as strong as totally intact teeth and proper care should be taken to ensure these ‘crowned’ teeth give you long trouble-free service. Though crowns may not need special care, however, it is important to understand that the underlying tooth is not protected and it is prone to decay and gum diseases. This is why you must stick to a good oral hygiene practice.


Aftercare Instructions for Dental Crowns


Temporary dental crowns

  • Avoid sticky and chewy food
  • Avoid chewing hard foods like raw vegetables, ice, etc.
  • Brush gently, and don’t floss around the temporary filling
  • Rinse with warm salt water if necessary

Long-Term Care for Your Permanent New Dental Crown

  • For 24 hours the above same rules apply after the final crown is fitted.
  • Since a dental implant uses a root replacement, the tooth looks like it’s growing right out of the gum, giving it a very natural look.
  • When you lose a tooth, the jawbone shrinks giving your face a ‘caved in’ look that makes you look much older. Dental implants prevent this from happening.
  • You will be able to chew with the same force and pressure as a natural tooth.
