oh crud - thats not good. You can buy temporary fillings at Kmart or Walmart. You might want to give that a try. I'm sorry. icon_sad.gif

As strange as this may sound...put Vaseline in the crown and stick it back on. It will hold you over! Dont laugh...it was actually advice from a Dentist!!

Oh no! That happened to my DH when we were on vacation. He was eating a Milk Dud. Wish we'd had your advice then MrsMissey...

I googled it and would you believe someone actually recommended super glue! I don't know if I'd want that in my mouth. With my luck, I'd glue my jaw shut! Hopefully they were just kidding. lol

There was also advice to use dental adhesive which sounds a lot safer.

Have you tried denture adhesive? My grandmother broke a tooth off of her partial plate and it held til she got to the dentist.

Sherryb....it will be okay till you get to the dentist Monday. I just lost one about a month ago myself. I had to wait over a week before my dentist would get me in. icon_cry.gif As long as it's not hurting it will be alright. I would watch eating and drink hot things. Be careful also chewing on that side. You might could PM Shelbysyummys, she works in a dental office. She might have some tips for ya.

Hugs, ~Denise

I am a hygienist...... we do recommend vaseline but if it's not working for you.....just try to press it on as well as you can to keep the other teeth from shifting and your gum tissue from collapsing in. Avoid chewing on that side. and call ASAP GOOD Luck! No pain?

I have 4 crowns..nope, 3 left..with no root canals done. This was done in I believe 1979, all of them at once. Had them all replaced about 20 years later and now have 3 left. I did lose one ealier and they stuck it back on with their "glue".
I've heard awful stories about root canals, and right now with no insurance, aint no way I'm going in for one!

Sherryb, you need to crawl back into a bed and start all over...beginning last Saturday, and it's only Monday!!!
Now, don't be doing anything else the rest of the week for safety sake!!!
(how badly broken is your finger? Hope you do better soon)

The good news is that it is only broken in one place. I have to wear a splint on it for 3 weeks. The Dr. said it may or may not work...we'll see at the end of 3 weeks. icon_sad.gif
I have several orders for cookies for Birthday parties and Christmas. Thank goodness my daughter can help decorate. icon_biggrin.gif
