Temporary crown help?
I have a temporary crown that was placed on a tooth that had a root canal. It keeps falling out, even with temp dental cement. This is very concerning for me, as I grind my teeth in my sleep, and the crown is very short, which leads me to fear choking on it or swallowing it in my sleep, neither of which would be fun. My dentist just told me to force it back in, but when I'm unconscious that's impossible. Do I get a mouth gaurd? Go back to the dentist as soon as possible? If I remove the crown, my tooth will shift and I still have eleven days until my final crown is completed. Can I just take it out overnight and see the dentist tomorrow? Any advice would be appreciated. I'm really stressed about this, and this far, I am resorting to simply not sleeping.
