Dental emergencies can lead to serious problems—and to a very unpleasant experience—but there are things you can do to be better prepared. You should consider including a small container with a lid to put a broken tooth into, gauze to help you stop bleeding, and a compress that can be frozen to help alleviate swelling.  But, while this list can help, there are also certain things you can do to deal with particular emergencies. Today, we’re here to give you a few ideas for dealing with a lost crown.

If your tooth hurts, we recommend using a piece of cotton to apply put clove oil on the painful area. You can find clove oil at drug stores or with other spices at your grocery store. Over-the-counter pain medication can also help.

Next, if you are able to slip your cap back over your teeth, put a little bit of dental cement or a denture adhesive inside your crown. If you don’t have access to dental cement or a denture adhesive, you could try a mixture of flower and water. Avoid using super glue to repair your crown.

The most important thing you could do is visit your dentist. Your  dentist can give you specific advice and repair your crown.
