“Loss of Temporary or Permanent Crown”
If a temporary crown or permanent crown falls out and you still have it, dry the crown and placed a small dab of toothpaste inside. Dry your tooth and replace the crown. It may take a couple guesses to get the crown on in the proper orientation. There are temporary adhesives available at pharmacies and groceries stores that you could purchase if you are unable to get into the office quickly. Call our office so we can get you in to recement or remake your temporary crown. If you lost a permanent crown we may be able to recement it, or it could be a sign that you need a new crown. Call our office so we can get you the proper treatment and don’t forget to bring your crown with you!
