I've lost my crown! What should I do?

If you've lost a crown we recommend contacting our office as soon as possible. Crowns are generally used to preserve and protect badly damaged or decayed teeth, and the loss of one can be uncomfortable. Sometimes we can simply reattach your exisiting crown, but sometimes the fact that the crown came out is a sign that it needs to be replaced. Until we see you, don't be afraid to brush and floss the area where the crown came out. Be sure to put your crown in a safe place and remember to bring it with you when you come in to have us take a look.

We place and replace crowns on a regular basis, and the sooner you schedule an appointment the sooner we can get to work on your crown replacement.  If you have a missing crown, don't hesitate to contact us right away.
