What do you do when your crown falls off?
While crowns are sturdy and durable, they don’t last forever. The wrong bite, a loose bond, or injury are some of the reasons why you may lose your crown. No reason for panic, though—Battery Hill Dental is here to fix it for you.
Why does a crown fall off?
Permanent crowns can come off due to many reasons. Typically, the crown itself may become debonded, or the underlying tooth may be damaged. While losing a crown may not be painful and is rarely an emergency, the underlying tooth may still be sensitive and is susceptible to infection.
Injury and trauma
A sudden blow to the mouth, particularly your crown, can unseat it. Whether this is due to an accident, sports injury, or biting down on hard or chewy food, your crown can loosen, break, or completely come off.
If you have a condition known as bruxism, or habitual teeth grinding and clenching, this can eventually wear out your crown and cause the bond to loosen from your tooth.
The space between the anchoring tooth and the crown can be filled with bacteria and acids that can cause tooth decay. This can happen when the crown doesn’t fit snugly around your tooth or if you have poor dental hygiene.
