What Is A Temporary Dental Filling?

Are you considering root canal therapy and have questions about temporary dental fillings? Watch this video by our dental assistant to learn more about a temporary dental filling and how they assist in root canal therapy.

This educational video was brought to you by Maryanne at Precision Endodontics P.C., an experienced Buffalo Endodontic office specializing in root canals throughout Buffalo and Western New York.

Maryanne often receives questions from patients about temporary filings. In this video, she clarifies what to do if you’re discharged with a temporary dental filling.

  • After leaving our office, we ask you to avoid chewing on the treated tooth because it will usually be a little tender for a couple of weeks.
  • The tenderness is completely manageable as long as you avoid chewing on that tooth.
  • Dr. McCann places a temporary filling in the tooth, and you will return to your general dentist for a permanent filling or a crown – whichever is best for you.
