It sounds as if you have a crown that was cemented to a a post buildup. This is not an implant. The core of the crown broke off inside of the crown. It sounds as if there is not enough of the core remaining to cement it back on. Save the crown because if the margins of the core are still intact,the crown can be retrofitted to a new core. If all you have is a small post,it will be difficult to get any retention to keep the crown on without falling off.In some cases you can clean out the inside of the crown and use some Dent temp available at drug stores to temporarily keep the crown on until you can see a dentist. In any case you will need to get to a dentist ASAP.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
