It is not a good idea to use super glue to re-cement a crown. When a crown comes out there can be a number of reasons for this happening. Usually the cement holding it in finally gives out or possibly there is a new cavity underneath and the crown comes out. If this occurs contact your dentist as soon as possible to replace it. The longer it remains out the greater the potential for problems with fitting it back in. There are temporary cement materials available over the counter at the pharmacy that may hold you over until you see a dentist but don’t use super glue. Recently we saw a patient who did and it created a number of additional problems. Chances are it will create problems for you too and may even cause you to need a new crown instead of just replacing the old one. It could be a costly mistake. Our office and our doctors are always available for emergency treatment.
Dental Implant Restorations. Treatment with dental implants to replace missing teeth has become routine in today’s dental practice. Restoration of missing teeth with implants has a very high success rate compared to other more common dental procedures. When considering restoration of a severely decayed or broken tooth, placement of an implant restoration may be a more predictable long term solution. Today we placed the final implant restoration on a patient from Jupiter. She was amazed at how simple the appointment was and pleased with her decision to restore her mouth to health with this option.
It is common practice with implant crowns to cement them with provisional cement. This allows for future removal if necessary to make adjustments or maintain any of the internal structures. If you have ever had an implant retaining screw loosen within the implant abutment you are aware of why temporary cement allows the components to be removed and tightened as needed. In this way your implant crown can be maintained trouble free for many years.
