2 Herbal Rinses To Help Protect Your Permanent Crown From Coronal Leakage

A permanent crown is often installed after your temporary crown is removed. The permanent crown is installed using dental adhesive which is a lot more durable and long lasting than the cement that is used to adhere a temporary crown. Even though the permanent crown may be more durable and stable, it can still result in coronal leakage. This leakage occurs when bacteria, food and other contaminants are able to slip past the crown and reinfect your tooth. This will create extreme pain and may result in a root canal. Coronal leakage is often the result of a faulty or weak seal. Plaque and tartar buildup can often weaken your dental seal. Therefore, there are a few herbal rinses that you should use to prevent coronal leakage.

Parsley Rinse

Parsley is considered to be a medicinal food that is used internally to treat a large number of ailments and illnesses. The herb displays antibacterial properties that help to rid the body of harmful bacteria and toxins. Parsley rinse can be obtained by extracting the juice from the plant. This can be done using a blender or a juicer. If you decide to use a blender, then add a few cups of water to the fresh parsley and blend until the mixture is smooth. Use a fine strainer to remove pieces of the herb from the mixture. Use the rinse to clean around your permanent crown and gumline. The rinse works well if it is used immediately following a meal.

Coriander Rinse

Coriander is widely used because it contains antimicrobial compounds and antioxidants. The antioxidants help to rid the body of toxins and contaminants. The antimicrobial properties help to ward off infection. A coriander rinse can be made in your kitchen using a handful of the fresh herb. Add the herb to a pot of boiling water and allow it to sit for several minutes. If you want to make the rinse stronger, then you can allow the coriander to sit for a few hours before removing it. Once it is ready, work the rinse throughout your mouth and concentrate on the areas near your crown. Use this rinse in the morning and at night in order to keep bacteria at bay.

If your permanent crown undergoes coronal leakage it will have to be removed and replaced. This can be expensive and time-consuming. Therefore, use these rinses to help prevent a bacterial infection.
