If your dental crown has become broken, loose, or lost, then you will need to come in to see us as soon as possible. When a crown comes loose, or even just partially debonded from the natural tooth, the danger is that bacteria can penetrate the area it used to cover and protect. This can lead to further infection and decay, which we always want to try and prevent at all costs.
You’ll also find the experience of a loose or lost crown uncomfortable, and it can lead to pain and increased sensitivity that many patients find difficult. Eating, chewing, hot and cold temperatures, and even air can cause the newly exposed tooth to twinge with pain. With our fast response emergency care and expert treatment, we’ll be able to treat you quickly and efficiently. While we might not be able to repair or replace your crown in the moment, we will be able to fit you with a temporary solution while we go about finding the right treatment for you. We’ll also ensure that any pain or discomfort is eliminated, so that you can leave the practice in comfort.
