Reasons Why a Dental Crown Becomes Loose
Posted on 1/30/2020 by Dr. Castellon
Dental crowns are one of the most important pieces that help people with tooth problems to not only gain the functionality they want back, but also provide the appeal everyone associates with healthy teeth. However, while dental crowns are a nice augmentation to your teeth, they are not invulnerable. Over time, you find that the crown tends to start getting loose because for one reason or another. Here are some of the main reasons why the crown may get loose with time. Tooth DecayOne of the biggest reasons for a loose dental crown is tooth decay. Dental crowns are not made of organic material like the tooth itself. As such, all the acidity and other harmful bacteria that cause tooth damage cannot damage the crown itself since then acid cannot eat through the crown. However, the acid can work on what is beneath it, making it that much more likely to get loose. Sticky FoodsGenerally, people who have prosthetics such as crowns should stay away from sticky foods in general. Although most are quite sweet and delicious, these foods slowly but surely loosen the grip your crown has on the tooth below, allowing it to become loose as time continues. Dental CementDental crowns are made of hard materials. Since the crown cannot adhere to the tooth by itself, there is a special adhesive used called dental cement. It helps keep the crown in place for a long time. However, since it is the glue, when it wears off, you can expect the crown to get shifty and unstable. However, a simple visit to our office should be enough to get things back on course. Dental crowns are very beneficial. Thanks to them, a lot of people with bad teeth have been given a new lease. To ensure everything stays on point, make sure never to miss an appointment with our professionals....
