I’ve Cracked My Dental Crown, What Should I Do?

June 21st, 2015
Q.

Hello Dr Moore.
I had a crown placed over a dental implant about 3 years ago, but now it’s cracked! It’s definitely going to fall out, it doesn’t feel secure at all now, and parts of it have started to come off. Obviously I can’t go on like this because I don’t want to cut my tongue or anything and it’s difficult to eat now. I’ve got an appointment with my dentist next Monday, but what should I do between then and now? And what will he say? Thank you.

I Need an Implant Replacing, Will Bone Grafting Work?

June 13th, 2015
Q.

Hi Dr Fahey, hope you can help me. I’m a 52 year old female, I don’t smoke and am in good health. I’ve had a back tooth implant for 9 years, but it has small bone loss and feels sensitive and a bit sore where the gums are exposed.My dentist has suggested gum and bone grafting, but I’ve been doing some research and have read a lot about it either being an impossible procedure or having a very low success rate. Can you offer me further advice to help me come to a decision?

Will Smoking Discolour My Crown?

May 4th, 2015
Q.

I’m having a dental implant with a crown fitted in 3 weeks time, but my dentist has been a bit unclear about how long the procedure is going to take. Also, I’m a smoker so I’m wondering if the crown will get discoloured over time? Thanks in advance.

Q.

Hi. I have three missing teeth at the top left hand side of my mouth. I’d really like dental implants to replace the missing teeth, but how much would it cost for three? The teeth are all next to each other. Thanks in advance!

Is It Possible To Have My Two Front Teeth Extracted And Replaced With Straighter Implants?

February 24th, 2015
Q.

Hello, I am looking for assistance regarding my two front teeth. One of them is crowned and the other is capped. I used to wear a brace but over time they have started to go back to where they were before. I would like these two teeth extracted and two new ones put in their place, but put in straight. I have read about implants and am wondering if it is possible to extract my two front teeth and replace then straighter with implants? I’d love to know your opinion! Thank you!

Why Does My Crown Keep Falling Out?

February 2nd, 2015
Q.

Hi Dr. Moore. My crown has fallen out 7 times this year. My dentist glues it back in and doesn’t charge me but I am tired of having to have it glued back in every 6 weeks. I’ve stopped eating real sticky foods and I floss down and out, never pulling up. I told my dentist I thought she cut the tooth too low when she did my root canal treatment, but she says it might be because I chew too hard. Is this my fault or hers, and what can I do?

My Dental Implant Crown Keeps Coming Loose. Have You Ever Heard Of This Happening?

January 19th, 2015
Q.

Hello Dr Fahey, I hope you can help me. My dental implant crown has come loose 4 times in the last year and the screw has been tightened each time which only lasts a few weeks at a time. Have you ever heard of this happening? Twice it has happened while I was flossing under it. It doesn’t hurt at all, it’s just the crown is coming loose which worries me. Any advice? Can we glue that screw in there?My dentist is considering ordering some new part but he told me he has never seen this before. Thanks.

I Pulled Floss From My Tooth And Heard A Crack. My Dentist Says I Have TMJ. Could I Have Fractured The Crown?

October 23rd, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr,
Four months ago I was flossing my teeth and the floss got stuck under my tooth with a crown. I pulled it out carefully and heard a crack. I didn’t have severe pain. But I started having dull pain about a few days after, plus, jaw pain, neck pain and ear ache. Went to the dentist and he said it was TMJ—okay— did all the recommended TMJ treatments. Plus, I had a physician I knew who gave me an antibiotic after the treatment which did not work for a week. I stopped all TMJ treatments and started taking the antibiotics. After the antibiotics everything went away. Four months later– it’s back. My dentist still says TMJ. But I wonder if the crack I heard caused a fracture under my crown. I continue to have dull achy pain next to the jaw area, and right ear pain (now burning at times) and muscle tension to neck and shoulder. Hope you can help. Thanks for your thoughts.

I Have An Infected Molar And I Don’t Want Complications. Should I Go With Antibiotics?

July 3rd, 2014
Q.

Hello, I have just had a crowned molar extracted because it got infected for a second time and my dentist said that recurrent infections were highly likely so it should come out. He cleaned the remaining hole but two days later it was infected. So he cleaned it again and put a swab in it with antiseptic on it. It feels like it is getting infected again though not as badly as the first time. I am going to see him tomorrow, two days after the swab went in. Should he give me antibiotics now or just clean it again. I am breastfeeding. I don’t want unnecessary antibiotics but I don’t want complications either. Many thanks in advance for your help.

Since My Apicoectomy, My Roots Are Slightly Exposed, Is This A Problem?

April 27th, 2014
Q.

Hi, I had an apicoectomy done in December last year everything went fine but the surgery was done above my crowns on front teeth now my tooth from under the crowns are slightly exposed i am worried that I may do some damage. What do you think is the best thing that I can do? Would I need to have new crowns fitted? If so will I be able to have it done on NHS? Or are there any solutions that could be used to fill the gaps somehow, or perhaps even should I wait longer and hope things will approve? Thank you for your time.
