What should I do if my crown comes off?
If your crown/cap falls off try to save it in a plastic bag so it does not get lost. Hopefully it can be re-cemented!
When a crown or cap falls off the tooth is exposed because a crowned tooth has no protective enamel and will be attacked by bacteria.
Your gum tissue will start to expand and that can make re-cementing your crown more difficult if too many days have past.
If the tooth has had a root canal in the past it may not hurt. Sometimes teeth with root canals have had a post put in and if the core broke you may see the post sticking out of your tooth.
Lets see if we can get that crown back on!
