You are chewing an apple and hear an odd sound, then something in your mouth feels wrong. One of your crowns has popped free. This is an urgent situation, but don’t panic! Chances are, the crown can be re-cemented here at The Plano Dentist.
What do you do when your dental crown comes off? It’s important that you remember the following:
Don’t Swallow It!
This may seem like a no-brainer, but we are mentioning it because it is vital. Carefully take it out of your mouth. If you accidentally swallow it, you will have some extra troubles that aren’t pleasant.
Inspect the crown and your tooth. If there is damage to either, we will need that information. Which brings us to number 3:
Call The Plano Dentist
We will schedule you an appointment promptly and counsel you on whether you should use temporary cement to re-attach the crown until you can get into our office and have it permanently re-cemented.
Use a toothbrush to carefully clean the crown and the exposed partial tooth.
Handle With Care
While waiting for the crown to be re-cemented, skip substances that are chewy, sticky, or crunchy.
At The Plano Dentist, we provide emergency dentistry and place dental crowns almost every day. Call our office to schedule your next checkup today!
