The Temp Tooth is an intriguing new dental product that allows a person who is missing one or more teeth to build temporary replacement teeth right from their own home. It is a temporary fix and classed as a cosmetic product. So does the newly formed tooth look good and how long will it last?
What is TempTooth?
TEMPTOOTH is a Northern California, Do-It-Yourself temporary tooth replacement product. Not only has Temptooth been available since November 2009 but it is also proven to be safe, non-toxic, and biodegradable.
How Does it Work?
TempTooth provides you with everything you will need from start to finish, including easy to follow instructions via their brochure and 3D website. After following the construction instructions, you will simply insert the new TempTooth between the existing teeth and you’re on your way.
What you May Want to Know:
How long will Temptooth last?
It has been proven that when instructions are properly followed TempTooth can
last for months. However, if needed, the option of making multiple teeth at a
time is available as you will be provided with enough material to make
approximately 10 teeth in one package.
Can I Eat while wearing it?
This is not recommended by the maker. Nonetheless, when made correctly the
TempTooth will be removable, allowing you to easily take it out saving the tooth
from unnecessary exposure to food and drink.
How Natural Does Temptooth Look?
The original newly created tooth will be very white. However, recognizing that it is common for most adults to have off white or yellowing teeth, there is a recommendation included in the package on how to safely colour the material to personally compliment your own teeth.
How does it come out?
It can simply be pulled out by using your pincher fingers and gently pulling.
Can I use TempTooth on Both the Top and Bottom?
Yes, the construction design you will need to follow, simply requires an immediate tooth on both sides of the missing tooth in order for it to properly work.
Can I Patch Repair a Partial Tooth?
This is not recommended as a filling repair, falling out or broken tooth. TempTooth is made to temporarily replace a completely missing tooth, that has fully healed gums, solely for cosmetic purposes.
Can I Sleep with My TempTooth Repair?
It is not recommended to wear your temporary tooth replacement to bed. When this product is made correctly the TempTooth should be easily inserted as well as removed.
Is there an age restriction?
Temptooth is not a product recommended for children. This is also meant to be a temporary replacement not a long-term fix. As such it is highly recommended that a dental professional be contacted for long term replacements and for children.
