I am Dr.Neha Gupta (dentist
) and am glad to address to your query here.
do not let a tooth go more than a couple days without a temporary to cover it, as you may be risking tooth movement, micro leakage and possible tooth breakage.
If you have any rough or sharp edges which are cutting your cheek or tongue and you are unable to get to our office, you can use orthodontic wax to cover it. Do not smooth or alter a sharp tooth which your dentist has already shaped for a final restoration.
Finally, do not eat in the area! This could result in tooth fracture
and tooth loss! Additionally, eating could result in food impaction
and a gum tissue infection.
Gently rinse your mouth with warm water.
Apply a small amount of clove oil with a cotton swab to the tooth to help sooth the pain and reduce sensitivity
