We understand that patients who suffer trauma need specialized, individualized care. We also know that it can be difficult to cope with your emergency. However, there are a few things you can do to prepare yourself—but one of the most important things you can do is to know how to respond to your emergency. To help you prepare, we’re happy to offer a few ideas about how you can cope with a lost crown.
If your tooth is aching, there are a few things you can do. We recommend over-the-counter pain medication, or using a cotton swab to rub clove oil on the painful area. You should be able to find clove oil at your drug store or with the other spices in a grocery store.
Try slipping your crown over your tooth. If you can, put a drop of dental cement or a denture adhesive to the inside of your and slide it over your tooth. In a pinch, a combination of flour and water may work. Please, don’t use super glue to attach your cap.
Overall, the most important thing should do is contact your dentist. A dentist can give you advice and better analyze your situation.
