Loose Crown/ Broken Crown

Crowns can de-bond or fracture or become loose at any time. In some cases, crowns can partially de-  bond and remain in place but allow bacteria to penetrate underneath them and cause  rapid decay and infection. A through assessment is required by your dentist. Call immediately to arrange an appointment with your dentist or Emergency Dentist Edinburgh.

Fixing of loose Crown or Bridge at Emergency Dentist Edinburgh

Individuals who feel their crown or bridge has come loose in their mouth should ensure they do not swallow them. The fixtures should be placed in a safe place and taken to a dental appointment as it may be possible for a dental professional to simply replace them.

If there is no decay, then your existing crown or bridge can normally be cemented back straight away. Re-cementation may not be possible if the crown or bridge is damaged.

Prevention of losing a Crown or Bridge

While dentists expect treatments such crowns and bridges to last around ten years, this depends on the types of materials used to create the fixture, as well as the quality of the substance used to manufacture and expertise of a dental professional.

It is vital for patients to give their crowns or bridges time to strengthen and the cement to harden, with many dentists recommending that brushing is avoided for the first 24-hours, or that the teeth are cleaned extremely lightly.

A dental professional will also recommend that certain foods and drinks are consumed for a certain period of time, including items such as soft chewy sweets and crunchy items. However, there is no definitive list of things patients should or should not eat.

Individuals who have recently had crowns or bridges may find it extremely beneficial to attend their next check-up sooner than predicted in order to ensure the installation is accurately fitted, no pain or discomfort is experienced and the healing process is progressing well.
