Q.

BROKEN CROWN

Good day

I recently had two operations. First one was to remove my salivary gland which they did via incition on the outside of my neck. Two weeks later I had another operation because I had the same problem only this time they removed a stone in my gland under my tongue and also drained drained an abscess.

I have a crown on the top right hand side of my mouth. My crown just fell out about five days after the second operation.

Anyway I went back to the ENT specialist and told them about what happened to my crown that I had for about 15 years and the Doctor said that there was way that they broke my crown. I advised him that i was only taking fluids at the time my crown fell out because of the operation being on the inside of my mouth I could not eat.

what is your opinion on this matter

Without knowing the status of the crown before the op it is not possible for me to say.
See your regular dentist and get his opinion.
