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

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

Dental crowns are durable, but not indestructible. Treating them like you treat your natural teeth is a good approach. Avoid biting into anything that is not food or not meant to be chewed. That includes hard candy, ice cubes, and even some nuts. Be cautious when biting into olives with pits and stone fruits, such as cherries. 

In the event that you damage your restoration, give us a call so we can address the problem!

To all our valued patients,

We have some news on the COVID-19 front. You may be aware of the recent changes to our restrictions that have been passed down this week regarding Dental Practices. As of Friday the 8th of May we will be operating at LEVEL 1 COVID-19 restrictions. All dental procedures are eligible at this level.
Additional screening and infection control procedures will still be in place including the use of hand sanitiser, pre-procedural mouth rinses and social distancing. We will explain this on an individual basis prior to your attendance at our surgery.

To stay up to date with Government information around COVID-19 

We hope you all continue to stay safe during this period.

Dr Gwendolin Flanagan and team.
