Upper jaw RCT Crown fell

The tooth that had undergone Root Canal Treatment some time (few months) is bare now. The cap just fell off while I was chewing a chewing gum. Could anyone recommend how mandatory it is to get it capped again? Also...since the cap was specifically designed for this tooth, it should be still re-usable, right?

Yes this cap should be immediately refixed, delay will cause migration and then you will have to remake the cap

Since crown is cemented by an adhesive,it is advisable not to eat sticky food, the crown can be re fixed if it fits,or else fresh one need to be made.

Yes it can be cemented again but make sure you ask your dentist to cement it with resin based luting cement which is more durable

It has to be put back asap. Yes presently same may be reused but if delayed then size might change. So contact nearby dentist and get it re cemented.
