Chairside Economical Resoration of Esthetic Ceramics
Many people lose a tooth or two as they age. Accidents happen and your tooth may fall out because of an injury. Teeth also get broken because of injuries. Some people grind their teeth so much that it damages them.
Nobody likes to have a smile they don’t want to show off to everyone. Nobody deserves to feel like that. You deserve to have a smile you can be proud of.
Typically when we need to replace teeth, we use crowns. Crowns are artificial teeth. They can be placed right over your broken teeth. They will also fit in the space where your teeth are missing.
The bad thing about getting crowns is that it takes time. If your teeth are missing, we will have to place implants in, which will act like new roots for your crown. There are times when we place a temporary crown in your mouth while we wait for your crown and implants to be made. This can be quite painful.

What should your oral hygiene routine include?
There are always questions about how to set up an oral hygiene routine when we have patients come in. Some want to know about how often to brush or floss, while others want to know about things like mouthwash. Here is a simple breakdown of what you need to make sure you are taking the best care of your oral health as possible.
Daily Oral Hygiene Routine
Each day, you need to make sure you brush. This should be done once in the morning and one more time at night. You should make sure you brush for a full two minutes each time, timing it out if necessary.
One of the times that you brush, you also need to floss. You want to drag the floss along the insides of your teeth, not saw it back and forth, to get the most debris out from between your teeth. You should then rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash to ensure the areas between your teeth get thoroughly clean.
Routine Outside of the Daily Grind
You also need to make sure you come in every six months for a cleaning. This is very important when it comes to caring for your teeth. We clean differently and more thoroughly than your toothbrush can. If we find any issues, you want to also have them treated as early as possible. Otherwise, it can lead to bigger problems that can ruin your oral health.
If you want more ideas on how to care for your mouth, call us. We are here, ready and waiting to help with anything you may need. Taking care of your oral health is something that helps take care of the rest of your body, too, so make sure you never let your oral health slide!
