Hello! I had a RCT completed not long ago. I was put a temporary filling until I get my crown for it. However, my temporary filling fell out and now I can see a hole in my tooth. Obviously I don't chew on that side and I also don't have any pain. My next appointment is in a few days. Will I be ok until then?
In short, my RCT was completed, my temporary filling fell out, and my next appointment is in a few days. Will I be ok? Thanks in advance!

Usually the temp filling only wears away a bit, and patients think the whole thing has fallen out. In any case, the completed RCT is at very low risk of being reinfected, as the sealant would've set long ago.
