    Dental crown fell out

    I wanted to enquire about a dental crown issue.

    I had a root canal treatment 10 months back since one of my teeth was in a pretty bad condition and was fitted with a ceramic crown on the tooth. Today the crown came out along with a bit of the cement that was holding the crown. The gutta-percha root that was installed after the treatment is still intact and I am not feeling any pain. But the cavity that was created by removing the decayed part of the tooth is now wide open. I wanted to know about the average cost of fixing the filling and the crown. I do have the intact crown with me.

    Thanks!

    RE: Dental crown fell out

    This has happened to me a couple of times over the years. Every dentist is different, but both times I was able to go to the dentist that put it on for me and he did it at no charge. I have heard of other people being charged somewhere around $100 -- not sure if insurance covers. I used denture cement to put the crown back on until I could get in to see the dentist. You definitely don't want food and other stuff getting stuck down in there.
