Lost Temporary

After crown and bridge treatment, a temporary restoration will be made. These restorations are in place to protect the tooth and provide comfort until the final crown or bridge is returned from the lab. This process usually takes less than 2 weeks.

If you have lost or fractured your temporary please don’t panic! It is common for temporaries to be lost during the 2 weeks transitional period… after all they are meant to be a temporary. Sometimes temporaries simply come off or they break when eating crunchy foods. In either case please call us to replace your lost restoration. In case our office is closed do not hesitate to reach Dr. Chakalov on his cell phone. He will be glad to see you as soon as possible even after hours.
