What To Do If You Have A Problem With Your Dental Crown
Posted October 20, 2017 by Wager-Evans Dental
When a dental crown is placed on a tooth, it is meant to provide permanent protection. With proper care, your restoration will serve you well for many years, keeping your tooth safe while allowing you to bite and chew normally. If you have a problem with your dental crown, you should reach out to your dentist as soon as possible for care. If your restoration is loose, damaged, or lost, it puts your tooth in jeopardy. By attending regular dental checkups, your dentist is able to monitor the condition of your crown. If it looks like it needs to be replaced, they can let you know, and you can arrange this before the crown suffers real damage.

Regular dental checkups give your dentist the opportunity to review your smile for any potential problems. They will look for signs of decay, evidence of gum disease, and many other possible concerns.

Early detection for any dental concern, including concerns about restorative work, can lead to less risk for your oral health, and earlier treatment.
