Tips for Helping Crowns Last
Dental crowns can last a very long time if they are properly cared for. However, you must make sure you are gentle with them. If you are not careful or caring for your crowns properly, expect them to last less than five years. By taking care of them properly, you can extend that up to nearly 20! Make sure you brush your teeth and floss like clockwork every single day. You also need to use your crowns gently - no ripping items open with your teeth! Plus, make sure you come in and let us check your mouth every six months. The better you care for your oral health, the longer your dental crowns are likely to last.




Protect Your Mouth This Summer
When the summer rolls around, you think about hanging out outside with friends and family, maybe having a barbeque. These are great activities for you to have. However, you need to make sure you protect yourself when you have them. If you don't remember to protect yourself ahead of time, you could wind up doing something that may hurt your body. Here are a few protection tips before you indulge in summertime fun.

Make Sure to Keep Food Choices in Mind

If you love a good barbeque, then you need to make sure that you eat it along with foods that can help clean your teeth. Barbeque is sticky and many sauces contain sugar, which can sometimes cause damage to your teeth. By eating vegetables that can clean your teeth and cutting down a side dishes high in carbohydrates, you minimize the damage the sauce can do to your teeth.

Always Use Sunscreen, Even Near Your Mouth

Sunscreen is a must when spending time outdoors. If you go out and have fun in the sun with family and friends, then make sure you use sunscreen. You want a sunscreen that is safe to use on your face, and to include the skin around your mouth. There is also lip balm that includes SPF which can protect your lips from sun damage. These areas are easy to overlook and could wind up with a sunburn, potentially leading to long term damage.

If you use these tips, you are much more likely to have fun without the long-term damage your mouth may otherwise have to endure. Enjoy your summer, just make sure to do it safely.
