Tooth update

I looked up online how to care for a lost crown and found some good information on They recommended keeping the area clean and getting some tooth "cement" to temporarily restore the crown to its place. I drove over to CVS and was able to locate some.

After spending the last few minutes brushing, flossing and rinsing my teeth I have used the "cement" to reinstall my crown. It still feels a bit tender, but the feeling of emptiness is gone thankfully and the most tender spot is now recovered. Hopefully this will help until I see the dentist.

I just need to remember to not chew on my left side, or at least chew very carefully. Thanks for listening and continuing to pray. :)

Glad you found a temporary solution! Praying it stays put until you are able to get in to the dentist.
