You are chewing an apple and hear an odd sound. Then, something in your mouth feels wrong. One of your crowns has popped off. 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 issues that aren’t pleasant.
Inspect the crown and your tooth. If there is damage to either, Drs. Blaisdell will need that information. Which brings me to number 3:
Call Blaisdell Family Dentistry
We will schedule you an appointment immediately and guide you on whether you should use temporary cement to re-attach the crown until you can get into Blaisdell Family Dentistry and have it permanently re-cemented.
Use a toothbrush to cautiously clean the crown and the vulnerable partial tooth.
Handle With Care
While waiting for the crown to be re-cemented, avoid substances that are chewy, sticky, or crunchy.
