Before you try an over the counter product, try putting some vaseline or toothpaste into the crown and placing it back on the tooth. Try to keep the tooth a little bit dry when doing this. Products vary depending on where you live, but Walmart always has some kind of temp filling materials. If you do buy something somewhere like Walmart, clean out the crown and place the crown back on your tooth with the temp cement while the tooth is as dry as possible. Look for Dentemp at Walmart. If you cant find that specific brand there should be another brand of Temp filling material. I suggest trying the crown on a few times to make sure you know how to get in on there properly so you dont end up with an improper bite. Schedule with your dentist asap to have them inspect the temp and the prepared tooth. Let me know if I can answer any more questions for you.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
