If your dental crown has been damaged or broken, then you need to keep a cool head. Even though it might seem scary, staying calm can help you through this situation. Fortunately, our dental team has some tips and information for you that can help you treat and care for your broken dental crown in Phoenix, Arizona.
First, grab your phone, call Center For Dental Rehabilitation by dialing 602.485.0505, and schedule an appointment with Dr. Maureen Toal. The sooner you come in for an appointment the sooner your dentist can completely fix the problem. Please remember to bring the crown with you so she can put it back into place.
Second, do your best to put the crown back. In order to do so, you can put a small piece of sugar-free gum or over-the-counter dental cement in the crown and then place the crown back over the tooth. If it fails to stay on your chomper, keep the crown in a safe place until your appointment so you don’t accidentally lose or break it.
Third, relieve any pain or discomfort. You can do so by taking an over-the-counter pain medication until you meet with your dentist. Our dental team never wants you to feel uncomfortable, so please take the painkillers as needed.
