How Dental Crowns Can Cause Redness Around Gums
Ideally, your dental crowns and bridges placed on top of the dental implant should fit perfectly with your neighboring teeth and tissues. If not, they can cause gum irritation, redness, and even contribute to infection risk. If you notice any redness around gums after getting a dental crown, it’s likely the fit is wrong.
Dental implants should give adequate clearance for your gum tissue. If they don’t give enough space for your gums, it can lead to irritation or sore gums.
Dental crowns can also irritate if they don’t fit in properly with your other teeth. If your dental crowns aren’t properly sized and fitted, they might experience excessive force from biting and chewing. This can cause the dental crown to press down on your gum tissue, irritating.
Dental crowns that don’t fit properly with your other teeth can lead to irritation of your gums by pinching gum tissue between the teeth.
Finally, poorly fitted dental crowns or a dental bridge might make it hard to clean around them. It’s also more likely that food particles become trapped too. If you’re experiencing these problems regularly, you have to consider the possibility that your dental crowns might be responsible.
Once you’re cleared of infection risk, you have to consider alternative causes of gum tissue irritation.
