You are chewing an apple and hear an odd 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. Call us at the Montz and Maher Dental Group serving Friendswood, South Houston, or Pearland areas. You may need emergency dental care.
What do you do when your dental crown comes off?
Don’t Swallow It!
This may seem like a no-brainer, but we are mentioning it because it is important. 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, we will need that information.
Call Montz and Maher Dental Group
We will schedule you an appointment ASAP and advise 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 cautiously 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.
In addition to emergency dental treatment, the services at Montz and Maher Dental Group include general, family and cosmetic dentistry. As part of our menu of cosmetic dentistry, we offer Invisalign. Call us today.
