How To Clean Your Dental Crown

In order to get the most out of the dental crown treatment in Encino, California, you need to be
committed to caring for it properly. Cleaning your crown is easy and very similar to how you
handle your natural teeth.

Here are some specific tips that will help you protect your investment and future smile.

Brushing Your Crown

It’s important to remember that your natural tooth is still underneath your crown and susceptible
to developing decay at the gum line. To prevent this from happening you should use a soft-
bristled toothbrush and tilt it to a 45-degree angle. Doing so will allow the tips of the bristles to
clean both your crown and natural tooth.

How to Floss

Flossing should be done at least once a day using a water flosser or traditional flossing string.
To use string, gently slide it between your teeth and maneuver it around the curves of each
tooth to remove plaque. To remove the floss, pull it through at the gum line instead of popping it
back out through the top of your tooth.
A water flosser is a handy piece of equipment, with a nozzle that you aim between your teeth as
it releases a high-pressure burst of water to flush away at all the bacteria between your teeth.

Dental Cleanings and Check-Ups

In addition to brushing and flossing, it’s important to see our Encino, California dentist every six
months for a cleaning and checkup. Doing so will allow us to remove the plaque and tartar
buildup from around your teeth and crowns that your toothbrush left behind. During your
cleanings, we’ll also take a close look at all your restorations to ensure that they’re in good
shape!
