Great question, let me help you.
Are you here?
So, is this your permanent or temporary crown?
temporary, getting permanent on Monday at 8:30. There is a law that says this will happen in the middle of the night or on a holiday weekend.
Yes, there actually is :)
so what shall I do?
Go to your local pharmacy or Wal Mart and purchase DenTemp
This is a temporary adhesive
Clean out your crown, and place the DenTemp inside it
Be sure the crown is oriented correctly before applying the cement
Do i just use according to directions and be careful/nervous the next few days?
Then after you place the crown back on, bite down onto it
You will be fine
This happens quite often. Just be sure it is cemented back on correctly, and you will be fine
Does the temp stuff expire, I have some from a couple years ago ( before I decided to get some things fixed more permanently.) It is in individual foil pack w/applicator.
Yes, the do have an expiration
Check your old pack to see if it is expired
If it doesn't say, then it is up to you if you want to use it
Anything else I can help you with?
well thanks much. guess that is all.
Please accept my answer.
Have a good weekend
