Do I really need to wait this long to get my crown, and why do I have to wait months? The healing time provided is not a provisional, ‘just to be on the safe side’ sort of time rame.
The answer to this question is always “no”. Uncategorically. In some cases, there is no real problem and it is just the cement that holds the dental crown in place that has been dissolved or otherwise compromised, but the problem is, you need a trained medical professional to be able to determine why and how the dental crown fell off. But the crown may be damaged, the tooth may have decayed, and you may not be able to re-adhere the dental crown without causing damage. The best thing to do in these cases is to wait it out until you can go back to your dentist and get the dental crown put back by a professional.
Temporary dental crowns are the crowns that you wear while the dental laboratory is making your final, perfect dental crown. These are necessary only as a hold over, so that you are not toothless in the interim period between the time you lost a tooth or part of it, and the time you get your dental crown. This is usually about a week, but certain circumstances (holidays, illness, scheduling, locational problems, problems with the final crown that require more time to fix etc.) may extend this period of time. Temporary dental crowns fall off because they are not meant to last for a long period of time, but only a short one, and when they do, the best thing to do is to call the dentist to get another one.
When you get a new dental crown, you may be surprised to find that it feels a little bit funny. It may even be painful, but in most cases of dental crown sensitivity, it is just a slight discomfort that comes along when you bite or encounter hot or cold sensations. This is a fairly normal occurrence, and can be caused by a number of things. We will now go over what can provoke dental crown sensitivity, how it can be managed, and what you need to do to end it.
Most people think that dental implants are a great idea, and really like this relatively new technology- but only in theory. Once the actual physical costs (both biological and financial) are realized, one of the first things that middle income patients do is start to look for a way around the tiny titanium screw. This makes sense, as one always wants to check all options before embarking on a quest that may end up costing thousands of pounds- but there isn’t always a better solution.
