LOST FILLING AND CROWN

If your crown or filling falls out, first remove it from your mouth so you don’t accidentally swallow or inhale it, or damage your other teeth by chewing on it. Try to save the crown or filling if possible to bring to the dentist.

LOST FILLING AND CROWN

Crown or Filling Fell Out

If a filling has fallen out, 

schedule an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible to make sure the tooth isn’t infected or have other issues that you should be aware of. Be sure to keep your teeth very clean in the time before you can visit the dentist; if it is too painful to brush, try swishing your mouth in warm salt water to keep the mouth clean. ZEN DENTAL CENTER will determine the best course of action thereafter, such as if a simple replacement filling is sufficient or if the tooth requires more extensive restoration.

it’s a good idea to temporarily place it back on your tooth until you can visit the dentist using over-the-counter dental cream, which can be found at most drugstores. Do not bite down on it too hard as that can damage the crown. Keep the crown to bring to the dentist if possible, so that he can assess whether it can still be used or if it needs to be replaced entirely. Make every effort to get a crown replaced as quickly as possible, because, without the protective crown, the tooth is now greatly exposed to bacteria and debris which can cause infection and further damage, and will also likely be extremely sensitive.
