You have received your crowns and are now enjoying their benefits. Dental crowns are dental restorations placed over a tooth. These restorations are held in place with adhesive, however, sometimes, they can come off, particularly after many years of use. It is crucial you know what to do if a crown comes off.
If you can, make sure you find the restoration. You may be able to place it back in place. After finding it, clean it first before placing it in the mouth. Since it has been in the mouth, it may be holding bacteria, food debris, and plaque. Once you get it, reapply with special dental cement that you can find in most drug stores. Never use ordinary glue, it contains substances that can harm you.

You may also want to schedule an appointment with a dentist. The dental professional will fit the restoration as soon as possible. If it needs repair or replacement, the dentist will do it. In most cases, crowns and other dental restorations will fall off because they are damaged or too loose. Before you get to a dental office, you may find that the tooth where the restoration was fitted is sensitive. In such as case, put some little clove oil on that tooth. Pick a cotton swab that you use to put the oil. You can find clove oil in most drug stores or in the spice aisle within supermarkets. Make sure you don't wait long to see a dentist.
