Posted by: lstkelly  (10 years ago)
My temporary crown came off again!(third time) its the weekend and the office said I can get in Monday and to put it back on the tooth. I am so worried I will loose it or it will come off while im sleeping. my question is should I call my dentist and ask if I can leave it off or see if he knows a way to put it back on better til monday or just leave it off. Its hurting my gums too much this way!

You can buy cream denture adhesive from the drug store to hold the temporary crown in place. This will hold it until you see your dentist.

Temporary crowns tend to fall off. Keep the area clean until you can get in to see your dentist or you can buy temporary cement from the drug store.
