    You are awesome, thank you. I bought the stuff, now I’m waiting for it to arrive. This is going to help until I have enough money to afford a dentist.

    Depends on how good of a job you do putting it in. Anywhere from a couple days to a month or two.

    Make sure the cavity is clean and dry first and tamp in the filling mix to get rid of any air bubbles. Do it before you go to bed so it can dry over night. Then do see the dentist when you can.

  5. What do you mean it …
    What do you mean it healed itself? Do you mean there’s no more infection or do you mean your tooth actually has no more holes in the enamel?

    They actually put temporary fillings in usually for the delay of making the crown for your tooth, drill it, fill it with temporary filling, then make a crown for your tooth.

    Awesome vid. I had textual instructions in the past but no vid. Hell, I will start serving the neighbors!

    whats the brand of that eugenol/zinc oxide mix in little tubes? coz i want to fix my front teeth that has been chipped…is it white in color?

    thanks in advance…and keep up the good work…

  11. Its good you got a …
    Its good you got a new dentist! I had an emergency filling a few years ago, I chipped the tooth it didn’t have a cavity I knew that! First thing out of his mouth was needs a canal. So I gave an option pull the tooth or fill it! Long story short he filled it after arguing with him. I went to my normal dentists and said I need a canal done to this and he laughed at me and said you are miles away from the root!
    Crocked dentists need a Orange Jumper Suit! Why can’t they just be honest!

  12. Ask your dentist …
    Ask your dentist about the pink stuff its alot better to use than this method although I would use this method if I chipped a tooth till I could get in to see a dentist only because its a DIY I could do to keep food out of it. I have a cavity in my mouth still have it had it for over 5 years it healed itself :) My dentist even told me it healed its self! :) (Rare to see happen)
    (Cavit (pink), IRM stongest temp is on another tooth that is a bigger cavity)

  13. @DaShadowInc It is …
    @DaShadowInc It is what the dentists use here, knowing several of them I have asked.

    I did find a new dentist – really good guy. He also uses a eugenol/zinc oxide mix, has it in little tubes too (takes them on holidays for emergencies).

    Never seen the pink stuff.

  14. This isn’t what a …
    This isn’t what a dentist uses, I just had temps done by a dentist 3 of them cheap and they are pink in colour! Reason for the temps is because the dentist isn’t sure if they need root canels and didn’t want to recommend it right away, he said to me this, if its my teeth what I would do is go with temps for 3 months and see what happens. (Major part here is to make sure it doesn’t abcess! Then would recommend just filling it)
    They always want to sell you a root canel? Find a new Dentist!!!

  15. I just read that …
    I just read that gold fillings or something can cost up to 900-3000$. I’ll do the composite if I can, since I don’t know the exact percentage my insurance does. I’m afraid of do-it-yourself stuff, but for an emergency (medical + financial), this is highly useful (almost a 90=95% savings).

  16. Thanks, Tahoen4u! …
    Thanks, Tahoen4u! I had spent a couple of days looking under “zinc oxide” (which manufacturers sold only by the “tons”) and finally gave up. When you told me to look up Eugenol, things did start popping up; and I finally found and ordered the zinc oxide from a seller named “gulfcoastliquidators” in eBay. I had already found the clove oil at a GNC near home. Thanks again!

    Oh, by the way, I liked your remark about “a tanker truck of eugenol and we can go into the DIY Home Dentistry business,” ‘cuz I thought and chuckled over that idea myself . . . why not!

  23. I’ve gone to …
    I’ve gone to several pharmacies here in the USA, but no luck finding the zinc oxide. You better hold on to your bag of zinc oxide; it may be the only bag you’ll ever get. On the other hand, you said you’re in Canada; so, maybe it’s easier to get zinc oxide there than in the U.S.A.?

  24. Tons, lol, cool … …
    Tons, lol, cool …how much?
    Now we just need a tanker truck of eugenol and we can go into the DIY Home Dentistry business.

    I found mine at a pharmacistry (in the back of one of the old original drugstores here in town.

    Phone book? Near towns and ask them if they’ll mail it to you.

  25. Just wanted to …
    Just wanted to THANK YOU very much for the useful information. The only trouble I’m having is finding pure zinc oxide anywhere. I finally had to pay about $7 each for a couple of mini-tubs of pre-made mixture. I’ve searched the ‘net and zinc oxide seems to be sold only in tons?!!!
