I Have A Crown With A Post That Keeps Coming Loose. What Is The Best Way To Get This Fixed?

Wednesday, August 14th, 2013
Q.

Why does my crown with a post keep coming loose? It is about 11 years old and I have been to my dentist at least 3 times in order to have it glued back in.  It is a front tooth with 5 more crowns next to it, all of which are fine so I just wondered if it may be the case that the crown could be glued in stronger?  I would be very grateful for your advice as I am getting to the point of thinking about having it removed and having a false tooth fitted as a replacement.

I’m Not Happy With My Implant Crown, Can My Dentist Correct It Free Of Charge?

Monday, August 5th, 2013
Q.

Hi, about a year ago I had a crown replaced which looked great and I was really happy with. After about three months I was in considerable pain and was told that my root had fractured and that I would now lose my tooth. I was given the option of a denture, bridge or implant. I decided to go with the implant as I felt this would be more beneficial. My other front tooth was always very slightly set back from my crown (naturally) and very slightly discoloured from the rest of my teeth and it was always my intention to have a veneer or crown on this one too in order to give myself a straighter smile. I went ahead and had the implant then my dentist went on maternity leave. Another dentist took over and did the impressions for my implant crown and at the time I informed her that I was going to have some sort of work on the one next to it done when my original dentist came back. When my crown came back and was fitted I noticed it stuck out quite a lot from my other teeth and much further than my original crown had. Where my other teeth come straight down, this one kicks out. I also have no bite at all on this tooth now. When I queried this I was told that it is preferred that you don’t have any bite on an implant at all and because I was going to have work done on the tooth next to it, it allowed them to change the shape of my tooth. I was never asked nor agreed to changing of the shape of my tooth. She told me it looked great and said I’d get used to it.

I was going to wait until my original dentist came back from maternity leave before having any work done on the front tooth next to it but decided that I couldn’t wait as the new ‘sticky out’ implant made the one next to it seem even further in so I went back and saw the dentist who did the implant. She is now saying that rather than cut away at the healthy tooth next to it and fit a crown that she would rather fit a veneer instead but that this won’t bring the tooth in line with the implant. I have two options now, I can either accept that since my implant sticks out so far and I have a veneer that I will never have straight teeth or, I can have my other tooth crowned to bring it in line with my sticky out implant and have two sticky out teeth!! I feel that the problem is with the implant crown but my dentist doesn’t see this. She says that I notice it because I’m aware of it but no one else does!! I really hate my teeth now but I’m loathe to pay again to replace the crown. Is there any way that I can insist on them correcting the crown on the implant free of charge? Am now wishing I had just gone for a bridge instead as my temporary one (done by my original dentist) looked much more natural.

My Crown Regularly Falls Off, What Kind Of Treatment Can Replace This?

Thursday, June 27th, 2013
Q.

Hi, I wondered if you could please advise me with something? My two front teeth have two crows on them one of the crowns regularly comes off and I have to go and get it glued back on from the dentist. My dentist has advised me that the post to which it is attached is too short and hence why it keeps coming off and loosening. He has recommended I have an implant put in however this is a costly process and one which I can not afford too easily at the moment, obviously I don’t want to be toothless. Are there any alternative treatments that I would be able to go ahead with in this situation? I wouldn’t mind another implant, as I said I’m slightly worried about the cost of it all.Thank you for your help in advance.

Friday, January 4th, 2013
Q.

hi im looking for some advice/information please what are the options/best solution to repairing a loose post crown connected to a bridge and another post crown? on the upper jaw, at the front, one of the tooth routes has apparently got a split (not certain??) and the advice given was to remove the tooth completely, wait 3-6 months for it to heal and then fit a new bridge spanning the gap of three teeth. is this a recommended course of action couldnt the existing bridge just be cemented back in? (i have a new dentist and im a bit unsure of her!) any response is welcome thank you

Why does my fibre glass post and crown keep coming loose?

Wednesday, August 25th, 2010
Q.
Dear Dr. Moore, I have had root canal treatment on one of my front teeth, which was restored with a fibre glass post and ceramic crown. This is the second restoration and unfortunately it keeps coming loose just like the first. I have considered an implant as a last resort but really would prefer not to have what is left of the tooth extracted if I can possibly avoid it. What my own dentist seems unable to tell me is if there is an alternative post arrangment (something like you would use during an implant procedure) instead of the smooth one I have which refuses to stay in place? I must add that this has been an onging problem for the last 10 years! I have good dental health otherwise and my gums are healthy. Thank you for your advice.,
