How long will a temporary tooth filling last?

It depends

The need for a temporary filling may stem from a small chip or a much more substantial loss of part of a tooth, or even from an opening that a dentist may make. There is a very wide choice of materials for temporary fillings. Some are soft and meant to be easily removed. Others may last a very long time (up to or beyond a year). The answer depends on a combination of these factors.

Is there a homemade remedy for a tooth filling?

No

Root_canal
Whatever home-made remedy you do might appear to solve the problem, but all you are doing is letting an insidious process (carious infection) progress to the point of reaching the dental pulp, at which point you're going to need to restore the tooth at greater cost AFTER you get a root canal. It is best to restore the tooth (a filling) as soon as you can and avoid the root canal.

Dr. Sandra Eleczko answered:

Do you think it could be ok to use araldite glue as a temporary tooth filling?

No

Head-teeth
While this glue is strong, it is not made to be used in you mouth. The best thing to do is see a dentist and have your tooth treated. If you can't see a dentist then try an over the counter temporary filling product. At least this will not do you any harm until you see a dentist.

Is gum swelling after tooth filling normal?

Gum swelling

Ankle_sprain
It is possible that the gums were irritated and swelled after having the matrix band around the tooth and a wedge during the filling process! That should go away quickly

Can this stain on my tooth filling go away?

Maybe

Filling
If it is a silver filling and the tooth is turning grey no. If it is a tooth colored filling maybe with a good cleaning. If the stain is through and through (the entire filling has changed color) then a new filling is in order.

If a tooth filling came out what do we do?

Refill, Crown or....

Silver-aec
Fillings usually don't just come out unless something is wrong. More often than not it is due to recurrent decay under or around the filling. Sometimes it's just from wear and tear over time or enough pressure on the filling causing it to break. Occasionally the surrounding tooth breaks and then the filling falls out. Your dentist can determine if it can be refilled or a crown is necessary.

What is the danger of mercury tooth filling?

I believe none.

Filling
All studies say there is no danger.Do a study for yourself & stand on a corner & see if anyone that passes by has at least one mercury amalgam filling in their mouth. You might find that 9 out if 10 will have at least 1 of these metal fillings in their mouth. Then ask yourself how are all these people walking around appearing healthy with all those type of fillings in their mouth.
