I have a loose dental crown. It was installed by a dentist I no longer see.Should I go back to have it fixed?
I had a crown put in by a dentist I have quit going to due to unprofessionalism and extreme turnover within the staff. I have found an excellent dentist I am very happy with. The crown keeps on coming loose-even the post came out!. I am not sure if I should go back to the dentist that put it in to fix it or keep paying my current dentist to re-glue it back into place. Has anyone else had a similar situation and what did you do?

stay with your current dentist. why would you even think of going back to your old bad one!. good luck!

It depends on how long ago it was placed. Most dentist will replace it with in five years. But, you are no longer a patient of theirs, for a reason. If he did bad work once, he'll do it again. Quality cost money. If the crown is loose and the post is falling out then you probably need a new crown. Have the dentist that knows what he is doing replace it!

If your dentist before is unprofessional then it sounds like his quality of work shows. If you like your current dentist and like his quality of work. Tell him your story and he can tell you what to do. He will probably be able to fix it and his quality of work will be better. If he suggests and only if he requests you to go back to the other dentist should you go.

Dr Sam is right. You do not seem to have given a chance to the dentist to rectify his mistake IF ANY, and provide 'solution' (in the crown) to your simple problem. Such problems are some times also the result of uncooperative patients in the chair while the procedure is in progress. By changing or walking into the office of a new dentist, you are only throwing dust in your own eyes. Any dentist would be an extra courteous to a new patient. Take your catch.

If the crown keeps coming out, something is wrong anyway. It sounds like you need a new post and then a new crown. Hopefully, your new dentist will do it right.

You didn't say how long ago the crown was done. If it was RECENT, as in less than one year ago, and if you have gone back ot the old dentist at least one time to have it recemented, I'd consider asking for some of your money back. You could say that you did give them the opportunity to "make it right" but now you know that it was substandard and it has to be made over again. As countryboy said, what have you got to lose?

Placement of a crown is such a standard procedure that any dentist, even most dental students, shopuld have no problem fixing it. Tell your new dentist about it, they should be able to handle it with no problem.

yep my previous dentist was pretty shitty and done a bad job i just swallowed and paid my new great dentist to have it redone!

I have 2 crowns and have found it's normal for a crown to come loose after 4 or 5 years (more so if you eat lots of foods that are unfriendly to teeth), so it would be hard to prove it would be the previous dentist's fault. I'd recommend having your current dentist take care of it.

Certainly NEVER go back to an unprofessional doctor.
Your new dentist should be able to make permanent repairs or replace the crown, if needed. Sorry you had to go through so much hassle. Unnecessary trips to the dentist are a bummer - not to mention EXPENSIVE!
Good luck.

I would recommend calling the old dentist's office and hitting them up to fix your crown. After all, what do you have to lose if you are no longer a customer??? Push the issue. If they say no, then that's the worst that could happen. I would think that the old dentist would be liable for the loose crown.
