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 costs you hundreds of dollars) can be re-cemented.
What do you do when your dental crown comes off? It’s important 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 indispensable. 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, Dr. Coleman or Dr. Dastrup will need that information. This brings me to number 3:
Call Coleman & Dastrup – Dentistry Elevated
We will schedule an appointment immediately and counsel you on whether you should use temporary cement to re-attach the crown until you can get into
Coleman & Dastrup – Dentistry Elevated
and have it permanently re-cemented.
Use a toothbrush to cautiously clean the crown and the exposed partial tooth.
Handle With Care
While waiting for the crown to be re-cemented, forego substances that are chewy, sticky, or crunchy.
