Hi.

I went for a check-up on 28th November. The dentist did a bit of proding around and said that there were no problems with my teeth. I have had no problems for years. I came home, started eating my tea and noticed that my crown was moving. I had had no movement in the crown prior to this. I telephoned my dentists and explained to the receptionist that I had been for a check-up a few days earlier and on returning home I noticed movement with my crown. I felt that this was possibly something to do with being at the dentists. The receptionist booked an appointment for me for Thursday 8th December. I went in to see my dentist. He told me that it was still well attached and that he did not want to force the crown off because he could damaged the root of the tooth. He told me to go home and chew some toffees and to get back intouch as soon as the crown has come off. My crown came off on the evening of Saturday 10th December. I made an appointment this morning (12th December) to have the crown re-fitted today. The dentist tried to re-fit the crown. He asked the dental nurse for some filling to re-fit the crown and I got told that the crown will not go back into place. He actually asked the dental nurse for some filling. He tried to trim the crown slightly and then gave up saying that I will have to have another one made. I do not understand why after only less than 48 hours of the crown being off my tooth it will not go back on. Could it have something to do with the fact that he put to much filling on the crown and that has stopped it from going back on? I have noticed that a large scratch has appeared on the crown since the dentist tried to re-fit it. Can I have some advice please?

Thanks

When re-cementing a crown a dentist needs to make sure the crown is clean and that the remaining tooth is intact and caries free . Then he should try it on and see if it still fits and only then should filler be added to stick it on again .

Do you think he had it the right way round?
