Caution: To avoid infection and/or serious injury, this product should not be used if there is throbbing pain, ulceration or swelling in the affected area. If any of these symptoms exist, consult your dentist immediately. This product should not be placed on open wounds. Do not swallow. Do not use if allergic to Eugenol. READ ALL OF THE DIRECTIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE USE. Wash and dry your hands. Use only what is needed to repair the dental emergency, and save the rest for a future application. Keep out of reach of children. Do not get into eyes
Tooth Saver: If tooth is dislodged, collect the tooth and do not try to clean it, there could be important soft tissue that will help in the healing process. Fill Tooth Saver container with milk or your own saliva. Place broken or whole tooth in container making certain that milk or saliva is completely covering tooth. Contact your dentist immediately. Chances of successful replantation are best if you see the dentist within 1 hour of incident.
Temparin Max : This is a temporary remedy meant to replace a lost filling, cap, crown or inlay until you have a chance to visit your dentist and should only be removed by a dental professional. Visit dentist within 48 hours of use. If irritation persists, inflammation develops, or if fever and infection develop stop use and ask a dentist or doctor.
Directions to replace a lost filling: Wash the cavity area with warm water to remove food particles. Saturate tip of a fresh cotton swab applicator with liquid from the Eugenol vial and apply to tooth. Avoid touching surrounding gum tissue, cheek, or tongue with wet applicator tip. Do not leave applicator in mouth. The Eugenol will help the filling material set up and adhere to the tooth enamel. Cut with spade tool or pinch a small amount of Temparin Max from the vial, and roll into a ball between fingers. Slightly overfill the cavity with Temparin Max and tamp into place with applicator tool tip. Close your teeth together, as if you were biting down on a piece of paper, and gently chew or grind on the replaced filling a couple times to create a comfortable bite. Use a moist cotton swab to remove excess Temparin Max from around the area. Moisture will accelerate the set. Temparin Max will set softly in your mouth within a few minutes, but avoid chewing on the repair for 2-3 hours to allow the material to fully set.
Directions to secure loose crowns, caps, or inlays: Try the crown, cap, or inlay first to see if you can fit it accurately back onto the tooth surface. If you are not able to do so, or if remaining tooth is cracked, then do not proceed further. If the crown has a post attached to it or if there is tooth surface remaining inside the crown, Temparin Max may not adhere. Carefully rinse the tooth area and the inside of the crown, cap, or inlay with warm water, and do not dry. Cut with spade tool or pinch a small amount of Temparin Max from the vial, roll into a ball between fingers, and place evenly inside the crown, cap, or inlay. Place the crown, cap, or inlay on the tooth and bite down, applying pressure to push into position. Temparin Max will begin to harden within a few minutes, but avoid chewing on the repair for at least 2-3 hours to allow the material to set. Use a toothbrush to gently clear any excess material from around the crown, cap, or inlay.

I had a filling fall out and needed something as the dentist isn’t open. The bonding agent smells (and tastes) like a really strong clove oil. It makes you really salivate so prepare for drooling! I don’t think this would work for a chipped tooth as I don’t think there would be enough grip to stay put. But as I’ve got the hole drilled by a dentist so there is a good area to stuff the putty into if that makes sense. Just put the bonding agent in the hole and stuff the putty in with the tool. Bite and grind to smooth. I did mine last thing at night after a good brush and clean out of the hole and next morning it was set. It’s been in for a couple of weeks now. Able to eat on it. Brush and it’s not moved yet. I understand it’s a temporary fix, but before I could not bite on that side due to pressure pain (no pain without biting on it) and now I can with no pain.
For a temp fix in these times it’s a great product and does the job
