DR. ALEX :

Great question, let me help you.

DR. ALEX :

Are you here?

Customer:

yes.

DR. ALEX :

So, is this your permanent or temporary crown?

Customer:

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.

DR. ALEX :

Yes, there actually is :)

Customer:

so what shall I do?

DR. ALEX :

Go to your local pharmacy or Wal Mart and purchase DenTemp

DR. ALEX :

This is a temporary adhesive

DR. ALEX :

Clean out your crown, and place the DenTemp inside it

DR. ALEX :

Be sure the crown is oriented correctly before applying the cement

Customer:

Do i just use according to directions and be careful/nervous the next few days?

DR. ALEX :

Then after you place the crown back on, bite down onto it

DR. ALEX :

You will be fine

DR. ALEX :

This happens quite often. Just be sure it is cemented back on correctly, and you will be fine

Customer:

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.

DR. ALEX :

Yes, the do have an expiration

DR. ALEX :

Check your old pack to see if it is expired

DR. ALEX :

If it doesn't say, then it is up to you if you want to use it

DR. ALEX :

Anything else I can help you with?

Customer:

well thanks much. guess that is all.

DR. ALEX :

Please accept my answer.

DR. ALEX :

Have a good weekend

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

KevinBeaverton, OR

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!!
