Making right choice while selecting Dental Crown: -

 As it becomes important to take into the consideration before making the dental visit to the dentist, similarly it is important to discuss all the pros and cons of dental crown types before finalizing it with the dentist.

A Crown is basically a cap covering the remaining tooth structure, which is broken, chipped or irregularly shaped. Crowns are done to enhance the aesthetics, function and shape of the natural tooth to regain the beautiful pearly smile.

Points to be considered before selecting the crown:

·         Aesthetics: - The most important thing to consider is, the crown should be natural looking like tooth especially in front tooth replacement. The full ceramic (Zirconia and E-max crowns) are more eye-pleasing than metal fused to porcelain crowns.

·         Functional: - The selected crown should fulfill the function of tearing, chewing and incising the food.

·         Form: - The crown should enhance the shape and size; it should be sleek, not bulky with proper contacts to the adjacent and opposite tooth.

·         Bio-compatible: - Some people are allergic to the Nobel metals and stainless steel metal as well, the crown should be not acting as allergen and it should be in harmony with the gums and tissues in mouth.

Ideally, you should change your tooth brush in 3 months and go for professionally cleaning twice in a year for the health of oral cavity.

Reasons to change your tooth brush: -

1.       After usage for 3 months the toothbrush comes to the end of its life, like every other material the tooth brush bristle also has its working life and gets to a point where it is no longer as effective as for the cleaning around the tooth surfaces and this also includes brush heads on electric toothbrushes.

2.       A new toothbrush can remove more plaque and tartar than one that is worn out due to over usage.

3.       As the bristles become worn they become more prone to bacterial or fungal growth.

4.       Using a toothbrush more than three months might give you dental problems, halitosis or bad breath as it won’t effectively work instead leads to abrasion of teeth due to harsh brushing to clean teeth.

5.      Worn out bristles can cause gum bleeding and tissue damage.

      Dental specialist also advises to change your toothbrush after you had an infection such as flu, cold mouth sores or sore throat. If you get sick make sure that change your brush even if it’s not 3 months old yet, as bacteria can breed on those bristles and make further cause the bacterial or fungal infection.

In Teeth Care Centre, the specialized and skilled dentist suggest the preventive dental care at home by brushing twice, use of dental floss and tongue cleaner and proper diet maintenance as well as professional care to rectify any incipient dental caries or gum diseases.
