Around 2.3 million implant-supported dental crowns are shaped each year in the US, which means that there are multiple patients seeing dental practitioners to protect their teeth. While crowns are guarding teeth, who is defending the crowns? Follow this list of tips we’ve gathered to save your oral crowns for a long time:

– If you feel any noteworthy heat- or cold-sensitivity more than ten days after your dental crown is installed, let us know as soon as possible.

– Call us if you sense any pain when biting down onto your crown, and we will determine if the crown needs to be adjusted.

– Even with oral crowns, you’ll still need to floss and brush your chompers!

– Avoid eating hard foods such as ice because they can split or chip your oral crowns.

– Watch closely for wobbly or stinky crowns, which could be a indication of the crown’s cement having washed away.

– Bring your crown to us if it falls out of place; do not reinstall it on your own! Trying to reinstall your dental crown on your own could be dangerous, and the crown could fall out again and choke you.

Dr. Guy M. Bennett makes sure to securely place all oral crowns. That said, it’s better to be safe than sorry, so memorize these tips for some peace of mind.
