A potent dental grade adhesive is typically used to secure a dental crown onto its anchoring abutment. Once it has been installed this treatment will restore the basic function of the previously compromised tooth.

Yet there are some things that can potentially affect the dental adhesive. This could cause a dental crown to feel loose or increasingly sensitive. Even if you aren’t experiencing any immediate pain or discomfort, you should still have the loose dental crown examined at Christopher Bernardini.

While you are waiting for your appointment, there are some simple things you can do to help minimize the chances of suffering further complication.

It’s best not to wiggle or manipulate a loose dental crown as it could potentially damage the internal abutment. If some form of dental trauma has left blood or other material in your mouth you can gently rinse it away with lukewarm salt water. Any other cleaning treatments will be handled by Dr. Christopher Bernardini, and his team.

After assessing the nature and severity of the problem Dr. Christopher Bernardini will present you with the most applicable treatment plan. This could include replacing the dental crown, performing a root canal or simply removing the original dental crown and cementing it back in place with fresh dental adhesive.

If you live in Staten Island, New York, and you have a loose dental crown, you need to call 718-987-4040 to seek professional care at Christopher Bernardini’s dental offices.
