Temporary Tooth Filling

Once a tooth filling falls out  you should seek the advise of your dentist who may recommend a temporary filling . This procedure may also be done Prior other procedures like displaced crown and root canal. We will focus on this procedure in this article. Falling of the tooth filing is something most of us have experienced when taking a hard bite at our food. This problem requires filling that needs to be done as soon as possible, but this can be hard when there are no dentists around. This is when temporary tooth filling comes in play. This is something that can be done even by a non-professional. Cavity and tooth decay require a repair that can be done with temporary tooth filling procedure. During this procedure, decay is removed; the area is cleaned and filled with a material that takes a shape of a tooth. This will close of the area from bacteria and avoid future decay. The material we have mentioned consists of amalgam, composite resin, gold and porcelain. Lost filling or displaced crown can be held in place with the help of this procedure. The problem we are talking about cause's pain if sensitive area is touched by cold area, tongue or cold foods or liquids. The area we are talking about is not exposed, but it was filled. Cimpat is the most common material used for the temporary tooth filling. It avoids future leaking, but this prevention is temporary and depends on the ability to seal and its strength. Filling can last for few months if it is placed properly and if it is not less thick then 4mm. But in other cases, the filling may be dissolved and washed away after a week.

The procedure

For the procedure you will also need cloves oil, disinfected water, latex gloves and antiseptic soap. The hands need to be washed with antiseptic soap and then put on the latex gloves. Then with disinfected water rinse your mouth and then filling needs to be prepared, with the premixed compound or if you do not have it, with wax or sugarless gum ball. Cloves oil or eugenol oil drop needs to be applied on the location and this will reduce the pain. Then insert the filling and be sure to fill the whole void and cover the tissue also. Then bite something down so that everything aligns, and after a while, the filling will harden.
