My crown fell off and I won't be able to see the dentist…

Customer Question
My crown fell off...

My crown fell off and I won't be able to see the dentist until Monday Oct 23rd.

Doctor's Assistant: When was your last visit to the dentist? Any irregular checkups?

I just had this crown put on Thursday, Oct 19th.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the dentist should know?

I believe I am in good health and don't know of any medical complications with the installation of the crown. We had a hard time getting the bite right and maybe the adhesive bond was weaken during the fitting.

Good morning! I'd be happy to guide you into getting this crown on temporarily until your appointment on 10/23. Is the inner surface of the crown clean? If you have touched it a lot, it's a good idea to wash it in soap and hot water. If you see excess cement lining the inside, try to clean that out with some type of small sharp instrument before washing it.

You will need to practice putting it onto your tooth to make sure you know the way it is supposed to fit. Once you have practiced and feel confident that you can get it in the right position, you can use some temporary dental cement (available at any drug store). Put a thin layer inside the crown and press it into place with your finger, first. Then confirm with your bite that you have it in the correct spot (this is why practicing is so important).

You will need to avoid any sticky or very chewy foods over the weekend.

Does that answer your question?

Sincerely,

Dr. Lara

KevinBeaverton, OR

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!!
