A dental crown is not supposed to a be a short-term solution to a dental problem. When your dentist places a crown, the intent is to permanently protect a vulnerable tooth. This is important after a cavity or injury takes place, because our enamel will not be able to naturally recover from these problems. If you find yourself with a broken, loose, or lost crown, bring the matter to your dentist as soon as possible. Your Moreno Valley, CA dentist’s office can provide the appropriate treatment to replace your restoration, and if necessary we can also address any health problems that the tooth experiences.
A Broken, Loose, Or Lost Dental Restoration Is A Real Cause For Concern
Any time you lose confidence in a dental filling or dental crown because it is loose or damaged, you should worry over the health of your tooth. After all, the restoration is in place to keep it safe and support your bite. Without its full support, you become vulnerable to potentially serious matters.
Replacing A Lost Or Damaged Crown
It is important that you receive a replacement for a lost or damaged crown as soon as possible. In fact, we can even bring you in for emergency dental work to address this problem. When you arrive, we can evaluate your tooth to see if you might need work done on it. This may be necessary if the restoration did damage to it, or if you experience problems after it was exposed. Once this is done, we can provide you with a new restoration that supports the tooth as well as your ability to safely bite and chew.
Your Dentist Can Check On Restorations During Regular Dental Exams
At regular dental exams, we check restorations as well as natural teeth. When we look at dental fillings and crowns, we can examine them to see if there might be early signs of trouble to address. Years of wear and tear can affect a restoration just as it can affect a natural tooth. Fortunately, when problems are caught in time, we can address them before there are complications to worry about.
