You are chewing an apple and hear a wierd sound, then something in your mouth feels wrong. One of your crowns has popped free. If that happens, call us at Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno right away. We offer emergency dentistry, and chances are good the crown (which cost you hundreds of dollars) can be re-cemented.
But let’s back up a moment. What shoud you do if a dental crown comes off? It’s essential that you take the following steps:
Don’t Swallow It!
This may seem like a no-brainer, but we are mentioning it because it is vital. Carefully take it out of your mouth. If you accidentally swallow it, you will have some extra issues that aren’t pleasant.
Inspect the crown and your tooth. If there is damage to either, we will need that information. Which brings me to number 3:
Use a toothbrush to cautiously clean the crown and the vulnerable partial tooth.
Handle With Care
While waiting for the crown to be re-cemented, forego substances that are chewy, sticky, or crunchy.
If you’re in pain, then make a beeline to Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno, where services include emergency dentistry. We’ve also got a full range of family dentistry services. Call us to schedule an appointment today!
