Failed crown

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: HotNCold  (9 years ago)
Hi!
I had a root canal done and a crown put on my upper right first molar five months ago. The crown fell out yesterday while I was eating. This has been the third time it came off since I got it. The dentist keeps on putting it back on but it just refuses to stay in my mouth. The tooth gives me throbbing pain and mild sensitivity to biting down as well. I have been to the dentist several times to get some adjustments but to no avail. What are the risks involved if I’ll have this tooth removed? It has given me so many problems and I am getting tired of it. Please help.

I don't blame you. Crown don't come off unless:

1. The tooth preparation is too short.
2. The tooth preparation is too tapered.
3. The crown is a poor fit to the restoration.

As to why you are having the post-operative pain, I do not know.

If you extract, make sure you have a socket preservation bone graft so an implant will be possible later.
