How to Keep Your Ceramic Teeth Clean

dca-blog_article-13_dental-hygiene-ceramic-teeth

The use of ceramic in dental restoration is not a new concept. The first porcelain denture was introduced in 1789. Ceramic materials come closest to replicating the color and appearance of natural teeth. Because ceramic teeth represent a significant investment, you’ll want to protect them by maintaining proper dental care and hygiene. The process of cleaning ceramic teeth is similar to that of cleaning natural teeth, but there are a few important differences. If you’ve just invested in a ceramic restoration, the following tips can make your dental care routine easier.

7 Tips for Maintaining Gorgeous, Gleaming Ceramic Teeth

  1. Brush your teeth twice each day. Be sure to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and brush gently to prevent scratching your ceramic teeth.
  2. Floss between your teeth nightly. Exercise caution when flossing the area around your ceramic restoration to avoid pulling on the edges of your filling and damaging it. If you have problems flossing your teeth, don’t simply avoid this important oral hygiene step. Consult your dentist for advice.
  3. Ask your dentist for oral care product recommendations.
  4. Electric toothbrushes can be used safely, but avoid ultrasonic toothbrushes. They can loosen or release the binding of ceramic restorations.
  5. If you wish to use mouthwash as part of your routine, choose an alcohol-free product. Alcohol can loosen or soften the bonding agents used to keep your ceramic restoration in place.
  6. Visit your dentist regularly for exams, and obtain professional dental cleanings as recommended.
  7. Some cleaning methods, oral care products, or personal habits may not be appropriate for ceramic teeth. Before trying any new product or procedure, seek advice from your dentist.
