Putting a crown back on
i had my back molar extracted and when he was taking it out the crown on the tooth in front of it came off. he cemented it back in but it feels weird. is their anyway he could have put it back in the wrong way?
Residual cement can prevent complete seating of the crown. You may need to return for a radiograph to verify that it is protecting the margins of the tooth completely and to check the bite.
