Hi there, I've had a crown fitted today with temporary cement as it was very sensitive. Anyway, it's now loose and every now & then really sensitive. I've called the emergency dentist an hour ago but still waiting for a call back. I know (or at least hope!) I'll get an emergency appointment with my own dentist tomorrow, but what do I do tonight?
Google says see if you can actually take the crown off so you don't swallow, or worse - inhale, it. I'm too much of a wimp to even try as it's so sensitive even with the crown on.
So do I try & remove & risk being in agony all night, or leave it alone and risk swallowing/inhaling it, or just stay awake all night?
