Tooth not washed and dried before crown put on?
When I had a crown put on a molar recently the dentist did not wash off and dry the tooth before cementing in the crown with Durelon. I know I got saliva on the tooth and did touch it with my tongue. I am worried about any bacteria on the tooth under this crown and also about the Bond. Would any bacteria be killed by the Durelon and/or would there be any risk of anything bad growing in this sealed environment? If so, then how urgent is it to have this crown removed and re-cemented? Would the crown be easier to remove now or should I wait? The crown was a good fit. Would not washing and drying the tooth before cementing weaken the bond, making it easier for infection to get under the crown? The crown was put on because the tooth was cracked but now 5 days later I still feel some pain on biting. Does the crown prevent this from getting worse? Thank you very much for any advice you can provide
