I just swallowed my temporary crown while eating. It had rather sharp edges. Will it cause problems in my stomach or intestines while passing ?

I need to ask a few questions
When did you swallow the crown? Are you having any pain?
About 30 minutes ago. No pain as yet
Can I help you?
Ok, thank you....
Do you recoimmend that I do anything special to help the crown with sharpn edges pass ?
Most likely it will not cause a problem. However, if you do not pass this in your stool within 3 days you should contact your physician. Drink LOTS of water. If you experience any abd. pain what so ever, report to the nearest emergency room. The biggest thing to be concerned about would be it causing a blockage in the intestine.
