My dental crown broke. Can you help?
Of course, dental emergencies always happen when you least expect them and at the most inconvenient times. Our Winter Park dental office is always available to patients who face a dental emergency outside of regular business hours.
Please call us immediately if you break a dental restoration like a crown or bridge. A member of our professional team will evaluate the situation and find a time for you to come to our office for an emergency appointment.
A dental crown may be loose or come off for a number of reasons. If you have a strong bite, you can damage your crown by chewing down hard and putting excessive force on the crown.
It is also possible that the cement on an older crown may deteriorate, causing the crown to become loose and eventually fall off. If there is decay under the crown, your tooth can become weak and unable to support a crown.
If you can retrieve your dental crown, keep it protected in a safe place until you can get to our office. If there is not a serious problem with the tooth or crown itself we may be able to cement it back in place.
If you experience any type of dental emergency, including a lost crown, please contact our Winter Park dental office as soon as possible. The sooner we see you, the sooner we can relieve your discomfort and save your tooth from further damage or loss.
