What would you do if you lost a dental crown? Would you use super glue to cement the tooth back into its proper place? Regardless of what you’ve heard, using glue on your crown is a bad idea. Still, what would you do? To help you know how to respond to a lost dental crown, we’re happy to offer you a few pieces of advice.
Is your tooth causing you pain? If so, we suggest using a cotton swab to put clove oil on sore area. Usually, you can find clove oil at a drug store or with other spices in a grocery store.
You should also clean and dry your cap and tooth. Try slipping the crown over your tooth. If it fits, put a drop of dental cement or a denture adhesive on the inside of your crown and slide it over your tooth.
Overall, perhaps the most important thing you can do is contact your dentist quickly. While you may not need to visit your dentist immediately, it is important to go soon. A dentist can give you specific advice and repair your crown.
