My temporary crown fell out. Is there something I can use to get it back in?

Your dentist should assume responsibility for re-cementing this crown. However, if for some reason he is out of town, there are a few things you can do in a pinch:
- Dental adhesive: This will hold your temporary crown fairly well. It’s not perfect, but it will work.
- Dental cement: Drug stores will sell a temporary dental cement to hold in crowns.
- Superglue: This will hold it, but it is sometimes difficult to remove in order to place your permanent crown.
I hope this helps.
