For many patients, getting a dental crown is a straightforward process. However, there are potential problems that could come up that you should be aware of.
- Heat/Cold sensitivity: When the anesthesia wears off, there could be sensitivity in that area. Ask your Summerville dentist if a toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth could alleviate that.
- Crown is loose: If this does happen and is untreated, there might be decay to the tooth under the crown. Visit your dentist as soon as you can.
- Crown falls off: While your dentist can offer a permanent solution, you can put it in place temporarily with an over the counter adhesive
If you have any other concerns about your new dental crown, get in touch with your dentist.
