Many times we get calls from patients who have a crown that came out or a broken tooth during the holidays. There is a quick fix. Most drug stores have a product that is called "Dental Temporary" . A putty-like material that can be pushed into a broken tooth or crown to get you by until you can seek proper dental care. While not ideal, it's better than walking around with a hole in your tooth.
Remember, if you have any dental emergencies during the holidays, my cell phone number is on our office answering machine.
Have a safe and healthy holiday season!!
