Consider the following scenario: you take a bite and notice something strange and lumpy on your tongue. Your crown has come loose and is now floating around in your mouth.
If this occurs to you, the most important thing to do is retrieve the crown and take it to a dentist. There’s a chance they’ll be able to clean it up and put it back in your mouth.
Make an appointment with a dentist right away. You’ll need to replace the crown or get a new one. Inquire with the dentist if there are any additional special instructions you should follow until your appointment.
You should also be cautious when eating and avoid chewing on the crown until you get your new crown. Until you can get it replaced, stick to soft foods and liquids.
A great smile has magical powers. Studies show that the majority of people today believe that having an attractive smile can have a positive impact on getting the job of your dreams, succeeding at work, finding the perfect mate, and even making new friends.
Your smile is your calling card. Whether you’re having social interactions with your family and friends, attending a family wedding, or simply going about your daily activities and interactions, – your smile has an immediate impact on the way people perceive you. And if you’re embarrassed about your teeth – because of missing teeth, aged smiles, worn down teeth, chips, crookedness, colour and among other aesthetic imperfections– people aren’t perceiving the most confident and attractive version of you.

The most important thing to remember is not to swallow your crown if it becomes loose. If it falls out of your mouth, make sure you find it and keep it.
Other important steps to take while your mouth is missing a crown:
You might not even notice that your crown has become loose until it falls out. It can, however, happen for a variety of reasons.
Tooth decay can occur in the remainder of the tooth beneath the crown on occasion. Bacteria can get under the crown and start decaying it, especially if some of the cement wears away or is washed away. The decay can affect the fit of the crown
The crown may become loose and fall out more easily. Sometimes there isn’t enough tooth left to keep a crown in place.
The dental cement used to hold the crown in place is strong and durable, but it does not last forever. Even with extreme caution, your teeth are likely to deteriorate over time, resulting in your crown falling out or becoming loosened.
If this occurs, you can clean your crown and tooth to remove any cement residue before placing your crown on the tooth structure. It should be as good as new with the crown in good condition.
When a tooth crown falls out, the dentist will examine both the crown and its location. Depending on the condition of the crown and your mouth, you will have to decide whether to perform a crown reinstallation or create and place a new crown.
It is possible to reinstall or reattach an existing dental crown even if the tooth is broken beneath, though some work may be required. However, if the tooth beneath is broken, you may need a new crown to ensure a perfect fit.
In case your crown fell off, you are not the first or last individual to do so. The essential thing to recall is to us to plan a meeting to reinstall or replace it. In case you experience dental crown failure or your need a new Dental crown, do not hesitate to contact us.
