What to do if you Break a Dental Crown?
Breaking a crown may not seem like an urgent issue, but depending on where or how it broke it can cause serious problems for your health. An exposed or damaged tooth left untreated can create an abscess or infection. If you happen to break your dental crown in any way call your Saddle Brook dentist as soon as possible.
Upon breaking your crown, try to find the chipped piece, if possible, and be sure not to swallow any other fractured pieces. In the case of serious mouth trauma, you may need to see an emergency dentist. Otherwise, your dentist will set up an appointment for you to repair or replace your crown. Some people experience increased sensitivity to the affected area so watch what you eat or drink in the meantime to protect your weak teeth. Check to see if your tooth is damaged in any other way because if so it could affect the replacement process. Take it easy for a while and do not put too much pressure on the broken area. Your dentist will be able to fix your crown in no time.
