Same here, different candy. Last time I was marathon eating Tootsie Roll Pops.I've had a few crowns come off over the years. Usually eating Starburst candy or something like that.
I've always gone back to the dentist to make sure the tooth underneath wasn't damaged or rotting before he glued the cap back on. Pretty reasonable price, too.
Probably why it came off. About 30 years ago I slipped on some rocks and broke the fall with my chin (ouch!). When I came to, I had 2 broken molars. By the time I got back home to visit the dentist, it was late in the day. He did a couple "temporary" crowns using filling material. He warned me they'd need to be replaced eventually, but I got almost 20 years out of them before they kind of crumbled and had to be replaced. A third crown has been in place since the mid 80s with no issues.I recall a dental hygienist friend of mine said crowns only have a life expectancy of 10 years? I had one fall off (gold) last year and it was decayed underneath.
No root canal with any of my crowns, no issues with them (except as noted above).A crown without a root canal is a waste of money. No nerve = no pain. Good dental insurance, pull it and get an impant
I agree. I have a cracked tooth that requires a crown. The insurance declined and the dentist resubmitted with additional information and evidence. It was declined again.I've found that dental insurance is kind of a waste of money. Most of the time it doesn't cover much beyond cleaning, X-rays and maybe a filling and the cost for the insurance is almost as much as the procedures it covers. Unless you have a much more generous plan than any I ever had.
