Re: Desperate PLEASE HELP Crown came off & NO post it there !!
It seems as if the tooth has broken off. That is why the periodontist could not glue the crown back on. Your dentist may try something heroic and place pins and a build-up for the crown to adhere to but it sounds like the periodontist's recommendation is the way to go. There just isn't anything much left of the tooth to put a crown on. #6 is a cuspid, and they have a long root and take a lot of lateral jaw motion stress. Don't worry, dentist's have all sorts of reconstruction techniques. Since there isn't anything left of the tooth, the dentist has to reconstuct it. You will be ok you will get a tooth back in that spot. Hang in there. Sharon
