Help dental problem! Crown fell off
My crown just came off. It's Sat. night and I can't see the dentist until Monday a.m. I stuck the crown back on but on the internet that is not recommended. Should I pull the crown off again? Should I stick it on with temporary glue which seems to be one solution that is recommended.???

Anyone who is a dentist or dental assistant - what should I do until I can see the dentist? I'm afraid it will come off again and I'll swallow it.

I had a crown come off on a weekend recently. I tried putting it back on, but it didn't stay very well, and I didn't want to swallow it, so I just left it off until I got to the dentist on Monday. Everything was fine and the dentist just glued it back on.

I would not put glue on it...that could break or compromise the crown, and they are too expensive to risk.

If you're having pain, I'd call the dentist tonight, or in the morning, and maybe s/he can Rx something to get you through. Mine was not painful, but I realize some might be painful or sensitive. If it's very sensitive, you could try dental wax shaped to cover the stump to protect it from air and temp changes.

Thank you both VERY much. This board is such a resource.

Since the surgery I had, swallowing is almost completely back to normal, but I still have a slight risk of choking so I'll leave it off at night and stick it on again tomorrow.

I really appreciate the feedback. :love8: :happy7:

Thanks, OBB. Can I drink coffee? I could fast for one day if I can have morning coffee.

I'm such an addict.

Nice to see you on board :) How are things going with the little princess?
