| | How long can I keep my temporary in? Awaiting Implant
Sorry, just read my previous post and realized it didn't make any sense.
I had tooth #7 extracted 3 months ago and am awaiting an implant. However due to my TMJ I probably have to wait over a year (braces may be in the future). I currently have a temporary bonded to adjacent teeth. My question is...how long can I keep this temporary? My dentist said that if I don't get an implant the gums will continue to recede. My perio said that as long as I push the temporary into the gums (by adding acrylic every 3 months), it will be fine.
Because this is my front tooth I am very very concerned. Please respond if you have had any experience with long term flipper usage or use of a temporary tooth. Thanks!
