Hi I'm, Dr. Santa Corner, founder of smile. Elements dental an aesthetic orthodontic. And an implant dental center Bettendorf annular.

Dental crowns are done for various reasons either after a root canal treatment to protect the tooth or else, there's a large restoration, which is suspected to break they're protected by doing a crown. So these crowns are not cemented. They are actually looted which we do say, cementation, actually, but it's, not with the glue, but it's looted in place with special dental. Cements that are available, and there are a lot of factors which guide for the crown to be written till in the mouth it's. The way the tooth is prepared the biting habits and how the occlusion is, and what are the chewing and grinding habits of the individual patient.

So occasionally, these crowns tend to come out so many a time if it's on a root canal treated to so, and it's, not hurting. We do see patients come in earlier, or taking their own time to visit a dentist. But if it's a whiter tooth, usually. There is a severe sensitivity or pain that's associated when a crown comes off. The best thing to do when a crown comes off is to see your dentist as soon as possible in case of a mighty tooth, we don't want that sensitivity to increase so much that the nerve inside gets inflamed and gets to die.

And we end up doing a root canal for that tooth later on. But if it's already a root canal, treat a tooth for one thing, the tooth is brittle because it is our C treated, and it's been cut all around. And when. A crown has come off form the position of the tooth tends to change as days go by so the same crown, which was fitting so well may not fit it for too much time, lapses and the opposite to supply adapt.

So the crown itself might end up being high when it has tried to resume it back. So the best thing to do as soon as the crown comes off is to see your dentist at the earliest.
