      Default Quick home made filling?

      Had a filling put in yesterday and the thing fell out today. Phoned dentist and I have an appointment on Monday to have it looked at.

      Problem is its sensitive to cold and although it doesn't hurt, I have a low-level headache with it. I would like to know is it possible for me to put something over it to plug the hole which will last just until Monday? Maybe like take a mouthwash and place a blob of sugar-free gum as a temporary thing (at least while I eat something?)

      You used to to be able to buy emergency dental kits in the UK. Can you still buy these?

      Hi you can still buy these, however, instead of buying a whole kit, you can just buy the filling stuff, e.g. at Boots:
      Dentek Temporary Filling Material Repair Kit:

      Hope this helps
