Lost Filling, Crown or Inlay/Onlay
Dental restorations like tooth fillings, crown, and inlays/onlays are often used to restore and protect cracked and broken teeth, or those with holes in them, from further damage.
These help people achieve the smiles they have lost, sometimes for decades.
Although strongly made, these dental restorations can still wear, fail, and age.
These problems usually occur during the most uncomfortable and unexpected times.
Preston Supreme Dental provides quick dental emergency services for you and your loved ones. Whenever you have damaged dental restorations, Preston Supreme Dental is here to serve you.
First Aid for Lost Filling, Crown or Inlay/Onlay
Your dental restorations play an essential role in your daily routine. They help our teeth perform their different functions. We chew, grind, and bite every day. As dental restoration ages, it wears and tears apart.
Another reason for losing a dental restoration is improper care. Dental restorations are synthetic and human-made. Although they were made durable, we do not expect them to last a lifetime. We often abuse our dental restorations by eating hard and sticky food that leads to breakage and tooth decay.
Losing a filling or crown doesn’t happen each time they are abused. But whenever it happens, you should know what to do. Losing a filling or crown is painful as it exposes your bare, unfilled tooth making for it is sensitive to extreme temperatures.
Here are some of the things you can do when you lose dental restorations:
- Rinse your mouth thoroughly. Remove remaining dental restoration debris from your mouth, if there is any.
- If lose a crown, store it in a safe place. Keep them away from children’s reach. They might mistake it for candy or toy.
- If you feel pain in the bare tooth, apply clove oil using a clean cotton swab. This helps numb the pain.
- Call your dentist immediately.
