Any dentists around that could advise?...

I had a temp filling put in over 2 weeks ago prior to a permanent filling which is booked for tomorrow. The dentist wanted to see if the temp filling was ok before the permanent one was done, as he wasn't sure where my pain was coming from.
It fell apart last Thursday and I went on Friday and he latched it up. 6 hours later it fell apart again.
He said it would be ok til tomorrow BUT I have developed a nasty chesty cough so don't think I will be able to have a 40 min appt tomorrow to have the permanent filling put in.
I am very worried about infection sad
Should I ask for another patch up til the cough goes?
