Help! My Crown Came Off!

repair broken dental crown Daly City

You are chewing an apple and hear an odd sound. Something in your mouth feels wrong. One of your crowns has popped free. Chances are, the crown (which cost you hundreds of dollars) can be re-cemented.

What do you do when your 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 it is essential. Carefully take the crown out of your mouth. If you accidentally swallow it, you will have some extra troubles that aren’t pleasant.

Look Carefully
Inspect the crown and your tooth. If there is damage to either, Dr. Hovden will need that information. Which brings me to number 3:

Call Kenneth Hovden DDS
We will schedule you an appointment right away and guide you on whether you should use temporary cement to re-attach the crown until you can have it permanently re-cemented.

Clean Gently
Use a toothbrush to cautiously clean the crown and the unprotected partial tooth.

Handle With Care
While waiting for the crown to be re-cemented, skip substances that are chewy, sticky, or crunchy.
