You folks are soooo kind! i managed to get hold of the covering dentist, and HE said that i could just pop the crown back on, and eat carefully. he also suggested using a crown adhesive that you can get at the drug store. and THERE, in the middle of all the denture stuff, were these tiny little plastic packs of temporary crown 'glue' and temporary fillings!!!
Who knew such things existed???? i was AMAZED!!!! sooo, i patched the huge cavity where the filling fell out, just to protect it. and found that it didn't work for the crown [i apparently have a post, which means i can't use this stuff], but the crown is back in, as long as i eat CAREFULLY, which means slowly. chewing carefully. nothing sticky.
and i can drink tea!!! sooo, not much pain at the moment. the tea habit continues. and i have soft stuff to eat. all in all - it'll be an OK week.
