Restore Your Teeth To Its Natural Appearance With A Dental Crown
A variety of dental crown procedures have been designed to serve different
purposes. Generally speaking, a dental crown is placed over a tooth to
restore the natural shape, size, strength, and appearance of the tooth.
Dental crowns can be cemented into place and can fully encase the entire
visible portion of a tooth that lies above the gum line.

Oral Hygiene Aids
In order to maintain optimal oral hygiene and health, it is important to
utilize the number of hygiene aids that are available to you. These aids
include the treatment and care our Ventura dentist has to offer you, as
well as the simple tools available in your home. While scheduling regular
visits to our dental office is essential to maintaining exceptional oral
hygiene and diagnosing potential problems, it is also important to keep
up with your at-home dental care.
Oral hygiene aids help in maintaining optimal at-home mouth care include:
Toothbrushes remove plaque and food particles from around the teeth and gums.
Floss removes food particles and plaque between teeth and below the gums.
Mouth rinses reduce bad breath, eliminate plaque, and minimize the chance of getting cavities.
Tongue cleaners remove the build-up of bacteria, fungi, and food debris from the tongue's surface.
Interdental cleaners are used to gently clean the contours of teeth in between the gums.
Oral irrigators clean debris from below the gum line.
Rubber tip stimulators remove plaque from around the gum line and stimulate blood flow to the gums.
Are you brushing your teeth properly & effectively?
Brushing our teeth is a task that we often speed through and do not perform
thoroughly. However, it is important to ensure you are implementing effective
brushing strategies in order to maintain good oral health, and avoid cavities
and gum disease. Proper tooth brushing calls for
at least two minutes of brushing, twice a day after every meal. Brushing more than three times a day can actually have a negative effect,
because it could wear down your tooth enamel and cause gum damage.
Tips for a more effective brushing experience include:
- Begin by dividing your mouth into 4 sections and spending 30 seconds brushing
each section. This way, you can make sure you brush your teeth for at
least two minutes.
- Hold the brush at a 45-degree angle to your gums, gently brushing the outside,
inside, and chewing surface of each tooth using short, up and down motions.
- Avoid using wide, side-to-side motions while brushing because this may
cause you to scrape your gums.
- It is important to pay extra attention to the gum line and hard-to-reach
areas at the back of your mouth. Fillings, crowns, and other teeth that
have been restored also require extra attention.
- Ensure the toothbrush you use is not too big or too small for your mouth.
The bristles of your toothbrush should be soft so that you do not irritate
- For fresher breath and to remove excess bacteria from the mouth, it is
beneficial to brush your tongue as well. If you are not thorough with
your tooth brushing, plaque will have more time to build up in your mouth.
Flossing: An Important Step to Maintaining Optimal Oral Hygiene
Flossing is used as a way to remove plaque and food particles from under
the gum line and between the teeth—places that a toothbrush cannot
easily reach. Since the build-up of plaque can lead to tooth decay and
it is highly recommended that you floss daily.
Approximately 18 inches is the sufficient amount of floss to work with.
Wrap most of the floss around both middle fingers, leaving one to two
inches of floss to work with. Ensure the floss is held tightly between
your thumbs and index fingers, gently sliding it up and down between your
teeth. Curve the floss around the base of every tooth, making sure the
floss goes beneath the gum line. Do not snap or force the floss because
this could cut or bruise the gum tissue. As you move from tooth to tooth,
make sure you are using clean sections of the floss.
