Prosthetic teeth—whether they be implanted, crowned, bridged, or denture teeth—are designed to act like your natural teeth, so they should be cared for in that way! Restored teeth are all still connected to your natural dental tissue in some way, so they are still at risk of many of the same infections as your natural teeth. While metal and porcelain will not decay, you can still experience decay underneath your crown. As well, implant teeth are still at risk of developing gum disease around them which can lead to them falling out. Rule of thumb this month—whether they are real, fake or enhanced… Look after them like your own. This means tooth brushing all surfaces, flossing in between as well as underneath those bridges and wire retainers!
