My crown has fallen off will I need a new crown ?
Q. My crown has just fallen out from a back molar. Is it possible to replace or will I have to have a new crown fitted? Mrs S
A. Whether you can have your crown refitted depends on the health of the underlying tooth remaining, whether the crown still fits ( no gaps ) and how long that tooth has been without its crown.
There is usually a good reason for a crown coming off. The most common and likely cause is new decay forming underneath the crown. If this is is the case a new crown is necessary.
Hope this helps,
