Dr. Jared Adams and the team at Cascadia Family Dental in Bend, Oregon, would like to shed light on some common concerns of patients when getting dental crowns. If a dental crown falls off, why does this happen, and what can be done about it? Any dentist understands the importance of having a healthy and confident smile. Let us explore some of the reasons why a dental crown could become detached.
Modern dental crowns are natural-looking and custom-crafted caps designed to encapsulate and protect a tooth that is damaged. Crowns are popular among dentists and patients because of their ability to restore the full function and aesthetics of a tooth. Dental crowns are crafted from strong materials with excellent durability. This doesn’t mean they can’t come loose or completely off a tooth.
While any good dentist will only use the best labs to fabricate your dental crown, sometimes there are situations where a crown may still come off. Some of the most common causes are:
Your dental crown has come off the tooth or feels loose, so naturally, you wonder what to do. First, you should make sure to keep the crown in a safe, clean place and then contact your dentist. In many situations, a crown can be easily put back in place. Dr. Adams and his team will get you in for an appointment as soon as possible, during which the situation will be assessed and the best action taken to either reattach the crown or get a new one crafted.
While you await your appointment, it is essential to practice good oral hygiene and avoid chewing on the side of the mouth where the now exposed tooth is until you can get in to see your dentist.
