Do you ever wonder what you can do when you face a dental emergency? Are you interested in preparing beforehand? If so, we’re happy to provide you with a few ways you can handle losing a dental crown.
If your aches, try using a cotton swab to spread clove oil over the sensitive area of your smile. You can find clove oil at a drug store or with other spices in a grocery store. Also, over-the-counter pain medication could be useful.
The next thing you should do is clean and dry your cap and tooth. Also, try to slide your cap over your tooth. If it fits, place a drop of dental cement or a denture adhesive to your crown and slip it over your tooth.
One of the most important things you can do during any dental emergency is to 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, repair your crown, and restore the appearance and function of your smile.
