Caring for Your Child's Crown


How do I take care of my child's crown?


Your child's gums may be sore after a crown is placed. If they are experiencing any discomfort you may give them Tylenol or Motrin and encourage them to eat soft foods until the discomfort subsides.

Crowns should be brushed and flossed just like natural teeth. Brush your child’s crowns gently but thoroughly twice daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush. It is important to avoid sticky foods which can dislodge the crown.
