I found out I lost a filling…Friday afternoon. I checked with no less than 6 dentist. They were either closed or they would not see me without an appointment. Now tell me that makes sense. It seems to be the norm for me anyway. Everything bad that happens to me is on Friday: Heart surgery twice, gall stone, Tooth ache and now, a lost filling.
At any rate, it got me to thinking. Maybe they could come up with a good temporary filling, something that would last a few days . It needs to last at least four days, which would allow for most holidays. Better yet, two weeks. That way, it would be much easier for the dentist to fit a person into his schedule.
I am sure there are all kinds of problems for such a thing, But as they like to say, all problems can be looked at as opportunities for the right person. Moreover, it would never be intended as a permanent solution. Perhaps they could be handled as a minor medical problem. It is even possible a pharmacist could install such a thing. Likely the most difficult part would be to cut the filling to size. Maybe they could use a 3D printer. Then it could be glued in place with Superglue.
Just a thought for the right inventor.
