In the bumps, scrapes, and wear and tear of life, fillings and crowns can become knocked loose, whether by accident or simply by eating particularly hard or brittle foods. It can be very harmful to your teeth and your dental health to leave lost fillings or crowns unattached. This leaves the cavities in your teeth open to gathering bacteria and causing further serious tooth decay that could cause your tooth to need to be removed entirely, or even lead to gum disease and abscesses below the gum line. Do not let a lost filling or a lost temporary crown go unchecked, because it could cost you your smile.
