Dental crowns are typically created from special dental materials that rival the strength of natural tooth enamel. Yet there are still times when an unnatural activity, such as grinding your teeth or nibbling on foreign items can chip one of your dental crowns.

In a situation like this, you should not delay in contacting Dr. Lyudmila Shur to seek treatment at her dental office in Lynnwood, Washington. Without timely, professional attention the damaged dental crown could cause even more significant problems for the sensitive abutment within.

You should never attempt to brush or clean a damaged dental crown. If the incident has left blood or other material in your mouth you can gently rinse it away using lukewarm saltwater. Any other cleaning should be left to the professional tools and techniques available to Dr. Lyudmila Shur.

If the abutment was somehow damaged by the incident it might require advanced treatment measures. In a case like this, Dr. Lyudmila Shur might need to perform a root canal to restore the structure. Once this is done she can start the process of fitting you for a new dental crown.

If you are in the Lynnwood, Washington, area and you’ve suffered a chipped or fractured crown, you should call 425-741-2030 to seek professional treatment at Dr. Shur Dental.
