A tooth can go a few days with a missing filling, but we typically do not recommend waiting longer. If your tooth is hurting, sensitive, sharp, cutting your lip or tongue we do want to see you as soon as possible. If the tooth lost a filling or crown but is not hurting or bothering you, we can see you within a few days to a week.
If you have lost a crown or filling, call our office. We are here to answer your questions and determine the most appropriate time and treatment.
