Durable materials like gold alloy, base metals, and dental grade porcelain are often used to produce dental crowns. These materials have the structural integrity to replace the enamel layer of a tooth that has suffered a significant dental trauma or a large cavity.
Unfortunately, there are a few instances where a significant oral trauma or other accident has been able to chip or fracture a dental crown.
In a crucial moment like this, it’s best to seek timely treatment from an experienced dentist like Dr. Jacob Shrayman. Without professional attention, the damaged dental crown could lead to even more significant complications.
While you’re waiting for your appointment it’s best to not attempt to brush or clean the damaged dental crown. If you have any unwanted material in your mouth you can gently rinse it away using lukewarm saltwater. Any other cleaning should be left to the professional tools and techniques at Jacob Shrayman, DDS.
Once Dr. Jacob Shrayman has assessed the severity of the problem, he will explain your treatment options. This might include installing a new crown or performing a root canal to address any other traumatized dental structures.
If you are in the Verona, New Jersey, area and you’ve suffered a chipped or fractured dental crown, you should call 973-239-3555 to seek professional treatment from Dr. Shrayman and our caring team!
