Toofypegs Tooth Repair Kit is a temporary repair kit that will help you to replace your filling or loose crown or cap until you can see a dentist. Ideal for those who need an emergency solution to a painful broken filling or crown.
Fillings can fall out due to the natural wear and tear they go through as you use your teeth. If you bite down hard on a tooth with a filling, this can break or crack the filling, causing it to fall out. Over time, your fillings can wear away, forming small cracks around the edges which can get bigger if they’re not repaired. Saliva can also make your fillings fall out, if saliva is between your tooth cavity and your new filling as it’s placed, it may not stick to your tooth properly and can fall out.
To use the Toofypegs Tooth Repair Kit to replace a filling, you will first need to dissolve the Toofypegs mouthwash tablets in a glass of warm water. Brush your teeth and then use the mouthwash solution to rinse and spit out. Cut a ½ cm length from the filling stick and place in a cup with enough boiling water to cover it. It will soften enough to be used in around 30 seconds. Roll the softened filling between your finger and thumb, apply to the cavity and then bite down firmly for a few seconds. Then hold the filling material in place with your finger or thumb until it has hardened.
