Dental crown restorations are often used to treat a tooth that has lost a significant amount of healthy tooth enamel to a large cavity or a significant dental trauma. Dental crowns are also used to address cosmetic restoration or as the final step in a root canal treatment.
They are made from durable dental materials like metallic alloys and dental grade porcelain, that rival or exceed the strength of natural tooth enamel. Once they have been constructed using state-of-the-art technology, our dentist will cement them in place with a strong dental adhesive.
As the years go by, it is possible poor oral hygiene complications or accidental oral trauma to affect the dental adhesive. In some of these cases the dental crown might feel loose or potentially fall out, exposing the sensitive abutment inside.
In a situation like this it’s best to seek timely treatment from Dr. C.R. (Chip) Edwards, Jr.. The longer you procrastinate professional care, the more you are at risk of suffering serious complications.
While you are waiting for your appointment, you shouldn’t attempt to clean or manipulate the dental crown or the exposed abutment. Our dentist and his professionally trained team will handle any necessary cleaning measures during the treatment process.
