How should I care for my crowns and bridges?

Dental Crowns and Bridges | Midland ParkRestorations like crowns and bridges at our Midland Park dental office are made using premium materials that are durable and long-lasting, but they are not indestructible.

Since they’re dental prosthetics, they won’t get a cavity like a real tooth. But the natural tooth beneath the restoration can, and you can still develop gum disease in the area. Here are a few tips for caring for your new restorations:

  • Continue to brush and floss as usual. If you have questions about cleaning around your restoration, talk to one of our hygienists. There are intraoral devices available that may work better than regular floss, depending on your needs.
  • Maintain preventive dental visits. Every time you come in for a dental exam and cleaning, our doctors check your dental restorations to make sure they’re in good condition.
  • To prevent damage to your crown or bridge, avoid hard or crunchy foods and chewing on ice.

At Ohana Dental of Bergen County, our professional team is always more than happy to answer your questions and provide tips for maintaining a healthy smile.
