All dental crown restorations performed at Country Club Dental are designed from durable materials like porcelain, gold or a metallic alloy. While they are durable enough to completely resist tooth decay, there are still times when a blow to the face or other complications can damage a crown.
If one of your crowns has suffered a chip or fracture, you should not delay in calling 530.677.4457 to have our highly trained dentist examine the situation. In the interim, there are a few things to keep in mind to help minimize further complications.
You should never attempt to brush or clean the damaged crown. If the incident has exposed some of the abutment, you might experience heightened sensitivity problems. If you have blood or debris in your mouth, you can gently rinse them away using lukewarm saltwater. Any other cleaning should be left to Dr. Sonny Afshar.
If the abutment was cracked or was otherwise damaged, it might cause serious complications. In a case like this, Dr. Sonny Afshar might need to perform a root canal to restore the damaged structure. Once this is done, they can start the process of fitting you for a new dental crown.
Significant damage to the abutment might require a root canal to restore enough internal structure so they can mount a new crown.
If you have suffered a damaged dental crown in Cameron Park, California, you should call 530.677.4457 to have it examined and treated at Country Club Dental.
