Need Support for Temporary Bridgework
Just need to check in with some folks who might know what I'm going through. Last week I was measured for a permanent bridgework over some of my lower teeth (meaning, they put in a temporary bridge while the permanent is made). I've been having a lot of trouble with the temporary. At first it didn't fit quite right, and I didn't know to go to the dentist and get it readjusted until about a week after it was in. By then (and because I had been biting down on it, which I found out I was not supposed to do), one of the teeth supporting it was quite sore. It's gotten somewhat better, but is stil sore. I find this very annoying.
Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions about how I can help this supporting tooth heal. And also just generally looking for folks who have gone through similar things, to say "you'll get through this" or "I know, it's a pain in the neck". Thanks
