Need Support for Temporary Bridgework

Dear Board,

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

Re: Need Support for Temporary Bridgework

I have top temporaries in. I had the 4 front teeth puled and will have three caps on each side - a permanent bridge. I have had the temps for 6 months now. Should have the permanents in today or tomorrow. Be very careful not to chew. There are actually quite a lot of softer foods you can just swallow, especially if they are cut small. I know this seems like a pain (a HUGE one), but now that you've had the teeth pulled, you have to play the game until the permanents are in. Keep those temps clean and let the dentist know if you think they are 'leaking' because that means bacteria is getting under those temps. If you have 'nubs' for future caps, the bacteria can destroy the nubs, and then you're out of luck.
