Pain, Teeth

DIY Dentistry?

Smiling lady

Have you ever been in the situation where you’ve lost a filling or broken a crown …and you’re on holiday, miles from a dentist, or it’s the weekend? Or … you’re just about to walk out the door to a kids soccer game? A meeting or an important social gathering?

Well, the old days of suffering through, with a big dose of pain relief and an ice-compress and wishing away the hours until you get to the dentist are gone!

They’ve been replaced by two new treatments that you can apply yourself for temporary relief.

Dentafix Temporary Cap Repair

The first of these is temporary cap repair material. This is a ready-to-use temporary cement which re-fixes dental crowns, inlays and bridges.

The important thing to know is that this is not glue – it’s a cement which sets when it comes into contact with water or saliva.

After 15-20 minutes of using Dentafix Temporary Cap Repair, you can start eating.

It does not irritate gums, can help to relieve pain and it’s easy to work with. What’s more, it’s easy for a dentist to remove without any damage to the bridge or the crown.

Dentafix Temporary Filling

Next up is Dentafix Temporary Filling material. This is a sealing compound for the temporary restoration of cavities. As with the cap repair, it sets on exposure to the mouth’s natural saliva, sealing the cavity, proving a temporary fix until you can get to a professional.

Both of these treatments are designed as dental emergency care or first-aid.

While there are numerous brands on the market, you can trust that Dentafix products are safe and easy to use on a temporary basis, because they have been developed with the help from Dentists – but you should always read the instructions first and follow these instructions.

It’s also critical that you should see a dental professional as soon as possible because while you might be able to DIY for a day or two, so life can go on, the mouth is a highly sensitive cavity. In fact, problems with teeth and gums can affect your overall health, so a proper diagnosis is essential so any problems can be treated effectively.

These kits are ideal for young travellers, grey nomads, or even for just the family first aid kit to have on hand when you need it. For more information, visit The Smile Boutique.
