Help! My Crown Came Off!

repair broken dental crown Derry

You are chewing an apple and hear a wierd sound, then something in your mouth feels wrong. One of your crowns has popped off. Chances are, the crown (which cost you hundreds of dollars) can be re-cemented. Time to phone us at OnCall Dental Urgent Care in Derry NH.

What should you do before coming in?┬áIt’s important that you take the following steps:

Don’t Swallow It!
This may seem like a no-brainer, but we are mentioning it because it has happened. Carefully take it out of your mouth. If you accidentally swallow it, you will have some extra problems that aren’t pleasant.

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

Call Vanguard Dental Group Oncall Urgent Dental Care
We will schedule you an appointment ASAP and guide you on whether you should use temporary cement to re-attach the crown until you can get into Vanguard Dental Group Oncall Urgent Dental Care and have it permanently re-cemented.

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

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

At OnCall Dental Urgent Care in Derry NH, we provide emergency dentistry, from replacing dental crowns to toothache relief. No appointment is necessary.
