You Should Not Procrastinate Treatment for a Loose Crown

All dental crown restorations performed at Scott R. Adishian, DDS, Inc. involve cementing the crown onto the anchoring abutment with a strong dental adhesive. While this bond is incredibly strong, there are still times when a blow to the face or complications from chronic gum disease can weaken this connection.

If you have a crown that feels loose or wiggles on the abutment, or if you experience pain when chewing, you should call 626-796-3700 to have it examined as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the more likely you are to experience significant complications.

If your crown is loose and you can’t immediately reach our clinic, there are a few basic things to keep in mind to help minimize complications.

You should never try to wiggle or even try to clean the loose crown. Every little bit of movement has the potential to cause damage to the abutment.

If the abutment inside the crown is undamaged, the chances are good that Dr. Scott R. Adishian might be able to reseat the original crown or start the process of replacing it. If the abutment is damaged in some way, he might need to perform a root canal.

If you have concerns with one of your dental crowns in Arcadia, California, you should call 626-796-3700 to schedule an appointment at Scott R. Adishian, DDS, Inc..
