Do yourself a favor and don’t make a bad situation worse. Either go back to the dentist and pay the $80, or find a different dentist and pay whatever he/she wants to charge, but don’t decide that THT is the place for DIY dental care advice. That will not turn out well.

I'm not a dentist but every crown my wife or I have had come off came completely off. There was nothing to hang up and keep it in. Maybe your implant came loose? Or the root broke if not an implant.
x2 maybe just a misunderstanding? try again and explain why you shouldn't pay?

I am more interested in the home made buffalo burger. Is there a s tory to the buffalo meat?

take care

I am the guy that pays for my dentist's life style. I have had it ALL done, crowns, implants, bridges, gum work, many root canals. When I walk through the door the staff greets me by name.

Something is wrong with the price, my last crown was $1100 in No Va. (High prices)

It means you are not in the US.

He was quoting a price for a crown from the US. The dollar exchange is different with you being in Canada, $1100 US and $1800 CAD might just be pretty close to the same money.

I would use a dremal. Dentists us an air driven, more precise "grinder" to remove the remaining material. Then re-glue. Pm extractor.

I had one come loose and I swallowed the damn thing. Took 3 days to retrieve it from the other end. I will spare you the details. I would find me a new dentist and pay him the $80.00.........Get this taken care of aap>

Just make sure they aren't the sugar free variety. I have never farted so much in my life.

The Amazon.com reviews for sugar free gummy bears are hilarious.

Come to Cozumel and go see Alejandra. Great dentist, latest equipment, laughed at the quality of the American crown I had. It will be great quality and cheap enough you will save money and get a week long vacation.
