Where can I purchase temp-bond?

    I was mislead a bit by the dental assistant who told me if my bridge falls
    out just stop by your local pharmacy and pick up some temp-bond.

    Sounded good to me.

    But unfortunately I just called one of the Sav-On Pharmacies here in San
    Diego County and was told they discontinued the product.

    So I am left wondering what's next.

    Can someone recommend a store chain that might carry this product?

    Thank you for your time.

    Temp bond is sold to dentists. Look for a product named Dentemp. Well
    stocked pharmacies carry it. It can be mixed either thickly as a
    temporary filling or more thinly as a temporary cement.

    By the way, what is the downside (if any) of using a 'permanent' adhesive?

    I am attempting to keep this 4-tooth bridge in place until my new insurance
    deductible kicks in January 1st. I maxed out the $1000 deductible for 2003.
    The dentist tells me one of the teeth used as an anchor is broken so he will
    have to redo this area by replacing the bridge with an appliance. So what I
    am asking is "If I use a permanent adhesive can he still do this work
    without too much difficulty removing the bridge?"

    Your instinct may be to go see this dentist. But let's assume for the sake
    of discussion I *insist* on doing this myself.

    Your thoughts?

    What kind of permanent cement?
    I've seen patients attempt to cement bridges in their mouths with crazy
    glue. Occasionally they've glued their fingers to the bridge, but more
    frequently the bridge is placed out in not quite the correct position,
    and the altered bite leaves the patient unable to chew comfortably.
    Then it can be a heck of a job to get it out again to put it in correctly.

    Why don't you finance the treatment through "dental fee plan" or some
    other 3rd party financing get the bridge changed now and ask your
    dentist to send the claim in Jan 1 2005. You will get a check in about
    30-60 days. Then pay off the loan there are no penalties since your
    dentist will pay part of the interest upfront.

    This way you get to enjoy your bridge now vs walking around with
    unhealthy teeth.

    Just remember that doing so constitutes fraud and a trip to jail if caught.

    You cannot perform treatment in October of 2004 and bill the insurance
    carrier in January 2005. That is fraud. You can begin treatment in October
    2004, and not finish until January 2005, then you can bill the insurance for
    the 2005 year.

    We agree.

    Some dentists split the cost of the bridge over two years .... like
    they prepared the anterior abutment at 11:50p on December 31st and the
    posterior abutment at 12:10a on January 1st!

    Everyone knows that you can't do it in 20 minutes!
