Dental crowns in Poland are a very popular treatment performed abroad, as crowns are perfect for restoring teeth which have been badly damaged due to tooth decay, breaks or any cracks. Many patients decide on coming to Poland for cheap crowns, which are also professionally made and very durable. Dental crowns may last up to 15 years, however, you should remember to take care of them properly! Keeping your crowns in a good condition is a continuing process, which starts just after they are placed on your teeth and has to be maintained every day.
What can I eat after getting a dental crown in Poland?
Permanent dental crowns are quite easy to take care of, so most of the times you are free to eat whatever you want. In Poland only the best materials are used to perform dental restorations and prosthetics, so you can be sure that your cheap crowns are highly resistant to damage. However, sometimes after the temporary crowns are placed some dentists say that you should avoid sticky and chewy foods (chewing gum, fudges or caramel), as potentially they may attach to the crown and remove it. Temporary crowns are not as strong as the permanent ones – they can occasionally break or come away, although it does not happen frequently. You should avoid eating very hard food, such as peanuts or raw vegetables, as they may dislodge or break the dental crown. Luckily, after the permanent crowns are installed, you do not need to be restricted in any way or retain any special diet. However, if you have any questions about what food is allowed after the cheap dental crowns placement in Poland, please do not hesitate to ask us.
What are the oral hygiene requirements after the dental crown procedure in Poland?
Whether you have cheap crowns installed or not, you should always remember about good oral hygiene habits. You should brush your teeth twice a day and floss and rinse your teeth daily. Some patients think that if they have a crown placed over the tooth, it is immune to any decay or disease, but in fact, it does not protect the gums so you should take care of the teeth accordingly! Within 24 hours of the crown placement, you should also refrain from chewing hard or sticky foods. The reason is quite simple – the cement must mature to have optimum strength. You can, and should, however, brush and floss as usual. What is more, if you have received a local anesthetic during the dental treatment in Poland, do not eat anything or drink hot drinks until you are no longer numb. If you cannot overcome the pain, you can, however, take some painkillers and drink a glass of water. Another good advice when it comes to the crowns aftercare is to gently rinse your mouth with warm salted water twice a day for around 5 days after your crowns have been placed. It is also worth mentioning, that your gums may feel a bit sore for a while after the cheap crowns treatment abroad. You should keep the area as clean as possible, but also you can soak it (hold some warm salted water in your mouth for a minute), it will help faster healing and bring you relief. In general, you should also refrain from grinding teeth, biting your nails or using your teeth to open packages. Such behavior may weaken the crown and can lead to its loosening.
How often should I have checkups after dental crowns procedure abroad?
Rarely, but sometimes practicing good oral hygiene turns out not to be enough and some complications may still occur. Maintaining proper habits does not replace the need for regular checkups with the dentist. Systematic visits at the clinic are highly important and generally speaking should be carried out every 6 months. It may happen that you may not even notice that something is wrong with the crown, but the professionalist will be able to detect it during a careful examination. Furthermore, during the control visits the teeth and crowns are skilfully cleaned and polished, so any plaque or tartar is removed. It can prevent any possible complications, so it is good to regularly see your dentist. As mentioned before, regular dental consultations are very important parts of taking good care of your cheap crowns, but also, and maybe more importantly, your overall dental health. What is more, consultations are not only about checking crowns, but also getting the answers to your questions. When you know more, you will feel less anxiety about the visits with the dentist and about the state of your teeth and crowns.
