Lost Fillings & Dental Crowns in Monument

Comprehensive & Compassionate Care

In most cases, fillings are generally used to restore or repair cavities in your mouth. When bacteria accumulates over time, it infects your tooth enamel and creates additional pockets leading to severe tooth decay. This ultimately complicates the cement holding the filling in place which may cause it to loosen and fall out.

Call (719) 694-3001 today to book an appointment if you have lost fillings or dental crowns in Monument.

What Should I Do If My Filling Falls Out?

If your dental filling has fallen out, it is imperative you see an emergency dentist as soon as possible. Our office in Monument has the resources to successfully restore your tooth with a crown quickly and effectively.

The process will begin with a comprehensive exam utilizing our digital x-rays to help us determine if your infection has penetrated the root of the tooth. In some cases, our dentist may need to perform a root canal before we are able to place your custom-fit crown in.

What Should I Do If My Crown Falls Out?

If your dental crown falls out, the first thing you should do is not panic. Instead, call our office so we can fit you in for a same-day appointment to restore your crown.

Can I Still Eat If My Crown Falls Out?

You can still it if your crown falls out, but only if you protect the tooth first. If your appointment for crown restoration isn't until later in the day, you will need to purchase dental putty or wax to put on your tooth to protect it. You can find these at most local drug stores.

I Think I Swallowed My Crown. What Should I Do?

We recommend calling a medical doctor immediately in the event you think you swallowed your crown. This is because there is a chance you could aspirate, meaning your lost crown is now in your lungs. When you see a medical doctor, they will be able to take full body x-rays to see where the crown went and ensure that your lungs are free of it.

In cases where no aspiration occurs, your dental crown should pass in a few days. Fortunately, dental crowns are small and smooth which helps them pass easily through the digestive track.
