Help - swallowed my temporary crown?!

Yikes...I think I may have swallowed a large temporary crown (for a molar) today. Not sure how or when...but it's missing! I'll call my dentist in the morning, or sooner...what do you think?

Has anyone had this happen? In the past, I've had them get loose, and had to get them re-cemented, but this time there was no warning! Does anyone know if it's ok to swallow them?

Any thoughts appreciated. I'm due to have the real crown place next week...grrr!

Don't panic! I swallowed a permanent crown. My dentist used temporary cement. I wasn't about to "retrieve" it and have it permanently cemented. I had to have a new permanent crown made. And, by the way, the dentist used plenty of permanent cement on the new one.

Just call you dentist in the morning and tell him you'll be in to have a new temporary installed.

Hi Carol

Thanks for your response! I guess it will just pass through, if I really swallowed it? Just thinking of the sharp edges

Bad enough to swallow a temporary...but a permanent?! I hope your dentist bought the replacement!

I wasn't about to pay for the replacement. It was the first and only time my dentist had ever used "temporary" cement with my crowns. I don't remember feeling any sharp edges when it passed through--apparently it had enough "packing material" surrounding it.
