temporary stopping

Etymology: L, temporalis + AS, stoppian, to stop up
a mixture of gutta-percha, zinc oxide, white wax, and coloring, used for temporarily sealing dressings in tooth cavities. It softens on heating and rehardens at room temperature but is not hard enough to be used effectively long term in tooth areas under occlusal stress. Compare sedative filling, temporary filling.
