Nothing is more uncomfortable and unnerving to an adult than a loose tooth. Certainly, you do not want to think about the process you are going to have to go through to get it fixed, but what about when you have already had that tooth taken care of by getting a crown or implant? At Ericsson Dental we get calls all the time from patients who have been to other dentists and now have a loose crown or loose implant. More often than not the situation is caused by the crown itself being placed incorrectly on the tooth, which has lead to the loose crown feeling uncomfortable. In some cases, loose crowns can stem from the implant being loose. (Not that we would ever say one of our patients has a screw loose!) Fortunately, if you have a loose crown Ericsson Dental is more than able to assist you. We are always open for our patients and want to make sure that you are taken care of completely. If you have a dental emergency in Boca Raton, contact us immediately!
So what is the process if you have a loose crown or loose dental implant in Boca Raton? First, you need to call an Emergency Dentist in Boca Raton like Ericsson Dental! Next, once we have you in the office, we need to make sure we know what is truly going on. In most cases, as we stated before the screw that anchors your implant are loose, and we will just need to tighten it up as well as evaluate what caused the event to happen so that we can prevent it in the future. In some cases, though the crown is broken, or cracked we will need to remove the loose crown and create a new one for you. Sometimes this will mean creating a whole new implant or just the tooth-colored covering.
Here’s what you need to do if you have a loose crown and can’t get to the dentist right away:
