URGENT - Loose crown - Any dentists online?

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?

Thank you, oh wise MNs

Put a shout out for MrsMerton, I think there's a hashtag or something.

Sorry, I don't understand what this means?

Thanks - I've just found her Dental Chronicles thread and asked my question there. She's responded to another question just now so hopefully she'll see mine too.

You can summon somebody by putting the @ sign

But I don't understand how to put a shout out for a particular poster?

Maybe it's case sensitive

Thanks for explaining - I'm a bit of a luddite.
