When I meet someone I always look at their teeth. Always. I think you can tell a lot about a person by their teeth. You can tell if they smoke (hello yellow), do meth (hello rotten), drink lots of coffee or soda (just a bit grey),or if they just don’t give a damn (nasty, fuzzy looking… ick). I wouldn’t go out with a guy who had bad teeth. Seriously. Could have been the nicest guy in the world but if I couldn’t bring myself to look at his teeth, well, the thought of kissing… {{shudder}}

I am lucky to have pretty nice teeth. It wasn’t always that way, though. I was raised on a farm and well water isn’t so great, it seems. Lots of minerals, no fluoride. (Does anyone else remember doing fluoride rinses in school?) I had lots of cavities as a child, most of which have ugly metal fillings. And then there were the braces. I had a nasty overbite. I wore braces throughout junior high. Metal braces that were cemented to the teeth. A couple of my teeth show the scars from that.

Fortunately dental work has come a long way and I am slowly changing old metal fillings to nice ceramic fillings. This work comes at the suggestion of my dentist as the fillings I have are quite old and are beginning to crack and fall out. As I found out the hard way…

I lived in St. Paul, alone, for 10 years. Which was great. Except for when something went wrong. There I was, alone one night, when I lost a rather large filling. The pain was incredible! I wasn't able to eat, drink, sleep... And it was Sunday. I couldn't even get in to see a dentist for at least 24 hours. If not more because you can never get into a dentist quickly.

I could have really used some sort of temporary dental repair. Of course none was available at that time.

But now there is! Dentemp OS is a new FDA approved over-the-counter dental cement for fillings and loose caps. Just a few facts:


Developed by a Dentist: Provides fast, temporary relief of pain and discomfort.

It's Easy! Just remove it from its plastic vial and it's ready to use.
No Mess! No Mixing! Several Applications in each vial.

Dental First Aid:
Replaces lost fillings and may be used to temporarily cement loose crowns.

It's Strong: You can eat on it within 30 minutes of setting.

Fully FDA Approved: All products have been tested and fully comply with
FDA Regulations for Oral Care.
You can get DentempOS at Walgreens, Rite Aid, CVS and many other locations around the US. Important info to keep in the back of your mind... Just in case.

I had all my metal fillings replaced about 3 years ago. I was like you...almost every tooth filled. I've had braces, crowns, root canals and bonding. If it's been done to a tooth, it's been done in my mouth.
