Question How do you glue your teeth back in?

I have two crowns, well - not crowns as such - more false teeth which have a 'stud' on them and they sit inside the tooth root.

One of them came out, it's a molar, whilst in Cornwall last year ..... I bought some DenTek cement and stuck it back in.

Later that same holiday a wave knocked my surfboard back into my mouth and loosened my front false tooth .... it didn't come out.

That was last July and I have glued the molar back in on one more occassion, it is no worry really as the natural way it sits is to be pushed back into its socket. The front tooth is another issue alltogether, it is subject to sideways forces ..... it needs securing much stronger.

Anyway, this front tooth popped out half an hour ago - luckily the whole stud came out too. I filled the root with DenTek and smeared some on the stud of the false tooth, pushed it back in and I am handsome again

I can't help but think that some glue would be better than cement?

There was someone on the TV just before Xmas who had 'SuperGlued' their teeth back in ..... seemed to be doing a good job too!

Do you lot carry out DIY Dentistry? I'm an engineer by trade and most of it is simple Engineering ..... I wish Engineers got paid half as much as Dentists mind you!

Any recommendations for clinically safe strong glue? It's cheaper for me to buy the glue and glue the teeth back every 6 months than pay one very expensive visit to the dentist.

Any chemists out there?

Bet you wouldn't like their overheads.

Stop winging Pete and go see a dentist.


Most glues you will buy are toxic if they enter the blood stream.

Gripfill?

Ad says: Gives excellent adhesion and bonding strength to most solid materials. Bonds plasterboard, teeth, skirting boards, Space shuttle thermal tiles, electrical conduit, non moving body parts, stone, ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

Should do the job.

How about no more nails!!

Seriously from what I remember a proper dental cement will bond with the dentine as well as forming a seal. Its when that seal goes that the crown falls out. I would think that a temporary cement is slightly different formula to one that your dentist will have as it is meant as a temporary measure to give you your handsome smile back until you can get an appointment and the dentist can remove it more easily to check that all is ok before cementing back in.

But you know all this Pete - Al has been through it many times with you. Tut tut.

Hey, guess what? When it finally let go it came out with the post too woohoo!! You know I was worried that it may have snapped like last time.

Looking at the root, it looks like it may be split and a Dentist will see signs floating around my head

When I put the tooth back in it went right back and lined up with the others - but, with the cement it is raised again but not as bad as B-B had to witness

Really, it is simple Engineering .... I begrudge paying loads for a simple glue job!

I did find this

As a dentist in the US, superglue will kill the nerve in your tooth over time, causing a root canal to be needed. If the tooth already has a root canal, it may not cause nerve damage to the tooth, but if it runs onto the gums, it can damage the blood supply to the gum tissue. The gums are a mucosal tissue, much different than putting on your skin. It has more nerves and blood supply. Also, most likely you would be sealing up tooth decay under the crown, causing it to eat away at the tooth, causing more tooth structure damage. Crowns usually come off because a cavity was under the crown. Here in the US, temporary dental cement is available in most drugstores, and it is the same as dentists use.

Not being facetious - just asking. What makes you think it is split?

Does this mean you are back on the snogging again if its refixed???

SuperGlue should be OK ... it was designed for bonding wounds together in the battlefield.

There looked like a crack/indentation when I looked up into the root.

Snogging? I doubt if the glue is THAT strong!!

Not exacty, super glue and medical glue are slightly different. The medical version is not exothermic (gets hot when setting) where as the stuff you'll by for DIY is.


Both however have Cyanoacrylate as the base, from there the similarity ends.

Had the gum grown over the root surface at all before you tried to cement it back in? If it has split in a big way you would probably be able to see it move when the crown was out.

Sonic - its not necessarily decay that causes crowns to fall out. If the seal of the cement is broken then it will fail...simple. That can be caused by a lever type effect for instance on a front tooth - or as possibly the case in Pete's the root may be split.

I was actually quite surprised at how clear the root is - it is quite a big hole - the dentist who did the job said that I would not snap the post (his earlier post was thin and did snap) ..... he was absolutely spot-on.

I cannot remember when it was done - is it a cast post or a 'screw thread' one?

My little crown came out chewing gum, as usual. Dentist is used to it now and just pops it back in for 15. Not bad as it only happens about once every 6 months. Hope you get yours sorted
