Lost Dental Restorations Cabramatta

Dental restorations, including fillingscrowns, and inlays/onlays, can still be lost or damaged, no matter how sturdy.

Decay that has grown behind dental fillings may cause them to come free. The deterioration impacts the tooth’s shape, and the filling’s fit.

Tooth decay can also cause dental crowns and inlays/onlays to come free. Additionally, they may suffer harm from flaws or bad habits, such as consuming excessive chewy or hard meals.

Common Reasons for Restoration Damage

Z Natural wear and tear

Your dental restorations are not indestructible. Over time, they may become less resilient because of the pressure they endure from regular chewing, biting, and other dental functions.

Z Improper use/abuse

Restorations have their restrictions. Although they are designed to be sturdy, they are not as strong as a natural tooth.

As a result, using them outside of their usual functions, such as opening packages, breaking the tape, or biting/chewing hard or sharp items, exposes them to dangers.

Z Poor dental hygiene

Tooth decay is the leading cause of dental restorations. Your teeth are meticulously cleaned before the installation, and all decaying areas are removed.

However, consistent mistreatment and omission encourage the growth of bacteria, which can lead to additional cavities in your mouth. The tooth weakens as the decay worsens until it can no longer sustain the dental treatment.

Z Poor dental work

The process depends on choosing the correct dentist to place your restoration. We at Cabramatta Dental Care are knowledgeable and skilled in this area.

Cabramatta Dental Care offers simple, high-quality dental restorations.

Actions to Take If a Restoration Is Lost or Damaged

Dental Crown

  • Locate and secure the crown.
  • To relieve pain and sensitivity, apply clove oil to the affected tooth.
  • While you wait to visit your dentist, apply petroleum jelly or over-the-counter dental cement to secure the crown in place.

Fillings, Inlays/Onlays

  • Rinse your mouth well to get rid of any broken fragments.
  • To relieve pain and sensitivity, apply clove oil to the impacted tooth.
  • Although you can use over-the-counter dental cement, it is safer to have your dentist restore the broken restorations.
  • Attempting to repair them yourself puts you at risk of swallowing or inhaling them. When consumed, they pass through the body, but they can induce a lung infection when breathed in.

How do I care for my dental restorations?

Treat your restorations with the same level of care as your original teeth. Attend follow-up appointments with your Cabramatta dentist and keep them clean every day.

How do I tell if my restoration needs to be repaired or replaced?

When your restoration produces pain, the bonding agent weakens. The same is true when a restoration develops a sharp edge or changes in texture.

Consult your Cabramatta dentist to determine the best choice for repairing your dental restoration.

When should I contact my dentist?

Suppose you have an issue with your dental repair, such as a crack in your filling or dentures that don’t fit properly, make an appointment with your Cabramatta dentist immediately once. See your dentist for routine cleanings and check-ups as well.
