As the filling the dentist was going to repair 4 weeks ago (ish) is starting to ache a bit

Which one is safe? who has got one in stock?

There is one called Toofy Pegs (in the UK).

Toofy pegs is rubbish, there is a better one on amazon called temparin

eBay. That's what I had to do. 😔 Paying four times the price.

Temparin on Amazon

The Amazon one says I need to see a dentist within 48 hours sad

It’s fine I kept in on for 3 weeks over Xmas. If it falls out there is more in the pot. Use a mouth wash as well to keep your teeth clean.

Micron. You can buy it on amazon.

I filled a filling that fell out. The dentist said to leave it in till it fell out. It's still in two years later.

Ask your dentist. At our practice we have been making up temporary filling packs to patients and handing them out, as we know folk are struggling to find them online now.

The dentist is sending me heavy duty antibiotics as he's a bit worried about the root!

Now I have to wok out how to get the prescription filled

I have the same problem I’ve been using Temparin Max. It does say on the back go to a dentist after 48 hours , but when I rang my dentist they told me to use it. It’s lasted about a week so far plus the one I bought has two pots and you only need a little bit. When I had nothing in the hole it hurt but since I put this in it’s doesn’t.

oo thanks

I'm still struggling to get anything from Amazon

I bought temparin in a big Sainsbury's a couple of weeks ago. They had quite a few in stock, it was beside the toothpaste.

I managed to get the last toofypegs in our Superdrug yesterday, I too couldn't find any online apart from eBay at 3x the normal price.
It's bloody difficult to use, make sure the tooth is really dry before using the stuff.

I’d recommend going to the biggest supermarket you have near you might be the best place to look x

A few other things that might work. Firstly stuff called "orthodontic wax" you can get on Amazon might help. Another brand called "safe and sound" was still available to order last week.
Another thing we have been recommending to folk is the wax from a baby bel cheese

My dentist recommended babybel wax, she says it doesn't matter if you accidentally swallow it either.

KatyMac Fri 24-Apr-20 22:12:17

Thanks all

I will order babybels as one of my 80 for next Thursday from Tesco (even if we do need real food)
