My crown on a older root canalled tooth (directly next to front tooth) came out last night. The crown has a post & is intact but my concern is keeping the canal of underlying tooth as clean as possible.
Its the weekend & cant get to the dentist & afraid to temporarily place back in & make things worse. I am able to seat crown back on but i think i should wait until dentist appt. my concern is bacteria getting into socket.I havnt eaten anything since it happened& dont plan to because to afraid.
Is there anything that could help keep the area/mouth clean/minimize bacteria/avoid infection besides brushing? Mouth rinses or any other options?
I am trying to stay calm but freaking out inside due to the anxiety & any advise would so greatly appreciated. Thank you.
