Temporary fillings are not designed to last a long time. However there is no clock inside it to tell it to break or fall out by a certain date.
Losing a tooth is not a pleasant experience and for most of us, we would like to have it replaced.
You probably already know what I'm going to say. No! That is the point of getting regular check ups with the dentist.
A crown usually requires 2 appointments and there is a temporary crown in place during this time. The temporary crown is designed to be removed with relative ease, so sometimes, it can fall off or break too early!
The biggest reason why people don't see the dentist as often as they should is because of the pain. If trimming our nails hurt as much, I'm sure many people would be walking around with 10cm long fingernails and shoes with extra long toe sections!
Teeth aren't actually that simple! There's a lot of different things that make up a tooth and they all have different roles to play. It is really a great work of engineering.
Commonly, when you get braces, the orthodontist will want some teeth taken out before the treatment is started. It can seem weird and harmful to remove perfectly healthy teeth.
