How To Take Care of Your New Crown

Dental Patient Marietta GA

Once you get your dental crown in Marietta, Georgia, you’ll want to know how to take care of it.  A well-maintained crown will last for many years, so here are some important tips to help make sure yours does just that.

Brushing Your Crown

It’s important to remember that a crown is just a cover that goes over your tooth.  This means that it’s still possible for your natural tooth to decay at the margin, where the base of the crown meets your tooth.

To prevent decay, make sure that you’re brushing your crown really well along the gumline.  Don’t brush too hard, but instead use a soft-bristled toothbrush and tilt it to a 45-degree angle so that the tips of the bristles are cleaning the gum tissue well.

How to Floss

Flossing is just as important as brushing. To floss, slide the string between your teeth and maneuver it around the curves of each tooth.  To remove the flood, gently slide it out at the gum line rather than snap it out through the top.

Using a water flosser is a lot faster and easier than using flossing string, so it might be something worth looking into.

Dental Cleanings and Check-Ups

Coming in regularly for a professional dental cleaning will give us the opportunity to remove the buildup that your toothbrush and floss left behind.  While you’re here, we’ll also take x-rays and perform an exam to check on your crown.

What to Eat

Though crowns are very strong, it is possible for them to break. Be cautious of what you eat or bite into.

  • I absolutely love this dental experience. I used to dread having to make dental trips but since finding this office 4 years ago that took the dread away. From making the appointment, to visiting with the office staff. It's great. The Hygienist is very friendly. But that Dr. O,
    she is a ray of sunshine. Perfect bedside manner, concerning, caring, helpful, and so very positive. I do not have dental insurance and could go somewhere else that may be a tad cheaper but I wouldn't trade this dental office for the world. They feel more like family. Give them a try you won't regret it!

  • I am very happy I came to this dental office! I tend to avoid going to the dentist because of past experiences, but my visit today was 10/10!! The dental hygienist, Kelly, and Dr. Buffington were so nice and thorough. I highly recommend! So happy I found a good and nice dental office finally!! :)

  • Always a great experience when I come in for cleanings or any work that has to be done. Special thanks to my hygienist Kelli for a good cleaning today and making me feel comfortable. Dr. Buffington is also terrific and very attentive. The entire staff will make you feel welcome and comfortable.

  • I have been a patient here for many years. I’ve always had positive experiences. I especially like the Dental Hygenist “Callie”. She is just the best, always smiling and cheerful, just what you need at the Dentist. She is very experienced and I’ve learned a lot from her. All the Staff is very nice and polite and Dr Buffington is great also. I’ve had a lot of dental work done by her and never had a problem. She is very gentle and painless too!

  • The dentist, Dr. Buffington, hygienist, and staff were professional and efficient. Dr. Buffington provided an excellent explanation to my question so that I understood the situation. High recommend this dental practice.

  • Dr. Buffington has to be the kindest, most patient dentist in the world. The staff is amazingly attentive, non-judgemental and offers a very comforting experience. I appreciate how patient they are with me, a 44-year old that still cries and would rather give birth (without medication) than have dental work. I hope you catch my drift😉

  • I really like Dr. Buffington. She gave me a plan that gives me hope about a TMJ issue. Everyone on the staff was professional and seemed genuinely caring. I would highly recommend the office.

    It’s a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and they don’t try to sell you on things you don’t need.

  • I highly recommend this dental practice. They took prompt and amazing care of me to address a TMJ episode. Dr. Buffington and all employees I encountered were professional, friendly, caring and knowledgeable. They set me on the path of recovery and have earned my respect and business going forward. How refreshing to engage with a business that truly understands customer service.
