What Causes Them Damage?

A number of things can cause damage to your dental restoration. We have listed the most common of them. Take a look.

  • Natural wear and tear
  • Use of your teeth and dental restorations as tools outside their normal functions
  • Secondary cavities forming underneath
  • Improper care
  • Poor dental work during placement

First Aid Steps

First aid steps do not solve dental problems. They merely provide temporary relief to help you manage before your trip to the dentist.

In case of a lost or damaged dental restoration, here’s what you can do:

Dental Crowns

  • Rinse mouth thoroughly.
  • Locate and secure the dental crown.
  • Lessen sensitivity of the tooth by applying a little clove oil using a cotton swab.
  • A temporary dental cement can be used to keep the crown in place on your way to the dentist.
  • Never use household glue to reattach the crown, this can hurt your teeth and further damage your dental crown.
  • Visit your dentist immediately.

Tooth Fillings, Inlays/Onlays

  • Rinse mouth thoroughly to remove all broken parts.
  • Do not reattach them to avoid swallowing or breathing them in.
  • Lessen sensitivity of the tooth by applying a little clove oil using a cotton swab.
  • Visit your dentist immediately.

Removing all broken parts of the dental restoration is very important. Accidental swallowing of them simply passes without a problem. But if you breathe them in, they can cause an infection in your lungs.

Treatment

Your Glen Waverley dentist will determine whether or not your dental restoration can be fixed or if you need to have a new one. The best way to relieve you of your suffering is to visit your dentist right away.
