My dentist provides no emergancy # on his answering machine, my real cap won't be ready for two weeks. What should I do to get through today, I only have teeth in the back on that side. can I glue it on with the stuff from the drugstore? Do i just not eat?

  • If you cannot contact your dentist and you are not able to glue it with temporary glueing material which is available OTC then there is no harm if the tooth left without cap for few hours or one day. Till then make it sure, not to eat anything from that side and if you have to take, then try to take liquids or semisolids. Donot take anything which is hard and sticky. Try to maintain good oral hygience so that food is not stuck there. You can do warm saline rinses 2-3 times a day. Schedule an appointment with your dentist in business hours.
