Do I have to avoid certain foods with a dental crown?

Placing a crown is one of the most common dental procedures dentists offer. After the dental crown procedure, the patient is provided with a temporary crown while we create your customized final restoration. 

Temporary crowns can more easily dislodge than final crowns, so it’s essential to avoid certain foods to preserve the prosthesis. 

Foods to Avoid with a Dental Crown

Our team at Lake Marion Dental Care recommends avoiding hard, sticky, or chewy foods, such as:

  • Celery sticks
  • Carrots
  • Gum
  • Caramel
  • Ice 
  • Hard candy
  • Taffy
  • Nuts
  • Popcorn
  • Corn on the cob 

Your dentist can also provide you with detailed instructions on diet, oral hygiene, and caring for your new dental crown. 

Caring for Your Dental Crown

Caring for your dental crown is vital to maintaining its strength, appearance, and ability to function. 

Here are some helpful tips for dental crown care:

  1. Brush twice daily with fluoride toothpaste. 
  2. Floss at least once daily. 
  3. Rinse with mouthwash. 
  4. Visit your dentist for routine exams and cleanings.
