What to do when your crown falls off

crown-fall-off-temprorary-fix

Ever had a crown pop off over the weekend, or even worse, when you are on vacation? It happens every once in a while, and nearly always at the most inconvenient time possible.

If you can make it into the office, the crown can be cemented back on if the tooth is still intact, or a new crown can be made same day.

If you are out of town, contact a dentist in the area that can see you on an emergency basis to temporarily cement the crown. It’s a quick visit, but the tooth should be taken care of sooner than later.

Another option is to go to any pharmacy, and ask the pharmacist where the temporary dental cement is located. This cement is a quick fix to hold you over until you can see a dentist with professional grade cement.
