Hello doctor,

I had a dental crown implanted a few months ago. It was dislodged a few days back while I was traveling. I lost the crown during my travel. Why did my crown fell off? What should I do now?

Thanks.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Please be calm. I am not sure of the reason for the crown dislodgement. There can be chances of temporary crown placement, which was not replaced with a permanent dental crown, and another chance could be trauma during occlusion.

I suggest you, please share history for confirmation of diagnosis.

Thanks.


Hello doctor,

Thank you for the response.

I was having a slice of cake when the crown came off in my mouth. The crown was a temporary placement. I got it in the month before eight months. I hope this information will help. If there is any other information required, please let me know.

Thanks.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

A temporary crown is not so strong to withstand your occlusal forces. And you are fortunate enough that you utilized a temporary crown for eight months. So, do not worry. Kindly get a permanent crown placed on your restoration.

Regards.


Hello doctor,

Thank you for the information.

1) I want to know if I put a permanent crown, how long will it stay intact?

2) Will there be any chance of the crown falling off again?

3) Also, is the extraction of the tooth a good option in case I do not want to go for crown placement again?

Thanks.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

A permanent dental crown can last for five to ten years, depending on occlusal stresses and oral hygiene maintenance. Regarding extraction, please share the picture of the involved tooth for better clarification and prognosis.

Regards.
