You are chewing an apple and hear a strange sound, then something in your mouth feels wrong. One of your crowns has come 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 critical that you take the following steps:
Don’t Swallow It!
This may seem like a no-brainer, but be aware that it can happen. Carefully take it out of your mouth. If you accidentally swallow it, you will have some extra problems that aren’t pleasant.
Inspect the crown and your tooth. If there is damage to either, Dr. Montz will need that information. This brings me to number 3:
Call Montz and Maher Dental Group
We will schedule you an appointment promptly and advise you on whether you should use temporary cement to re-attach the crown until you can get into Montz and Maher Dental Group and have it permanently re-cemented.
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, abstain from substances that are chewy, sticky, or crunchy.
