Help! My Crown Came Off!

repair broken dental crown Palm Harbor

You are chewing an apple and hear a strange sound, then something in your mouth feels wrong. One of your crowns has popped free. Chances are, the crown (which cost you hundreds of dollars) can be re-cemented.

What do you do when your dental crown comes off? It’s essential that you take the following steps:

Don’t Swallow It!
This may seem like a no-brainer, but we are mentioning it because it is crucial. Carefully take it out of your mouth. If you accidentally swallow it, you will have some extra troubles that aren’t pleasant.

Look Carefully
Inspect the crown and your tooth. If there is damage to either, your Prestige Dentistry doctor will need that information. Which brings me to number 3:

Call Prestige Dentistry
We will schedule you an appointment immediately and advise you on whether you should use temporary cement to re-attach the crown until you can get into Prestige Dentistry and have it permanently re-cemented.

Clean Gently
Use a toothbrush to closely clean the crown and the unprotected partial tooth.

Handle With Care
While waiting for the crown to be re-cemented, skip substances that are chewy, sticky, or crunchy.
