You’re chewing an apple and hear a wierd sound, then something in your mouth feels wrong. One of your crowns has come off. Call us at Boulder County Smiles in Lafayette CO right away. 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 vital 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 issues that aren’t pleasant.
Inspect the crown and your tooth. If there is damage to either, we will need that information. Which brings us to number 3:
Call Gordon West DDS – Aesthetic & General Dentistry
We will schedule you an appointment right away and guide you on whether you should use temporary cement to re-attach the crown until you can get into our office.
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, avoid substances that are chewy, sticky, or crunchy.
