In Reply to: Is there anything that can temporarily hide a missing tooth? posted by Trina on November 06, 2000 at 23:52:36:
: My mother lost a tooth (#7, I think). She is getting a root canal next week and a crown with a bridge the following week. In the meantime, she has a party she had been planning to attend for quite some time but she feels uneasy going with such a prominent tooth missing. Is there anything that could be temporarily put there to hide the missing tooth? Thanks for any help...
When she goes in for the crown and bridge work they will make a temporary that will have the missing tooth on it. If the party is before her appt. she can have what is called a flipper,it replaces one tooth it is removable and can be made in one day. It would cost about 200.00 dollars to be made and she wouldnt be wearing it for very long, but if cost is not an issue then tell her to call her DDS and tell him to have one made,she will have to go in and have a impression done. Maybe she can have the bridge appiontment befor ethe party and then this way she will have the tempoary bridge in place.
