Broken or Lost Crown

Has Your Crown Broken Off or is Loose?

For Immediate Treatment and to Ensure that No Other Complications or Dental Problems Arise From Your Situation, Contact Our Emergency Dental Team Now on:

A dental crown is used to cover the entire surface of a tooth, which has been destroyed, worn, or damaged; the dental crown can also be used to improve the appearance of severely discoloured teeth, to cover a dental implant, or to hold a dental bridge in its proper position. Any damage to the dental crown can expose the sensitive areas of the tooth to even more damage, and can cause a lot of pain and discomfort for the patient.

 

A Broken Dental Crown

will need to be addressed as soon as possible, so that the damage can be dealt with immediately to prevent complications from arising. Chips on porcelain dental crowns can be repaired using composite resin; however, if the chip or crack is extensive, the whole dental crown may need to be replaced. This is to ensure that the entire broken dental crown will still be able to do its work in protecting the affected tooth from dental problems, and from even further damage. A dental crown that accidentally falls off can still be re-attached by the dentist especially if the concern is seen immediately, provided that the crown has not been damaged.

 

A Broken Dental Crown Can be Avoided as Follows:

  • The maintenance of proper oral hygiene, which includes regular tooth brushing, the use of dental floss, and regular dental checkups.
  • Avoid chewing on food items or surfaces that are very hard, as this can cause the dental crown to be damaged of broken.
  • Avoid teeth grinding, which can cause too much pressure to be put on the dental crowns.

 

A Lost Dental Crown – What You Should Do

You have to keep your crown secure so you can have it re-cemented as soon as you can to prevent further damage. Sometimes, a root canal treatment is recommended.
