Why can't an existing tooth be glued back in to the hole left behind?

More info needed...: Not sure of your question... if you are asking why an extracted tooth cannot be glued into your bony socket, it's because it will not stay in place. Your body will treat it as a foreign object and will try to reject it. ...Read more

I accidentally glued something to my tooth. How can I get it off safely?

I accidentally glued something to my tooth. How can I get it off safely?

Depends on glue: See your dentist. Depends on glue and the something. If it was superglue, it will eventually come off as the glue dissolves in the mouth -- may take days / weeks. If you can grab the something with your fingers or needlenose pliers, you might be able to twist it off. If it is soft enough, you might use an emery board to sand/file it off. If all else fails --see your dentist. Good luck. ...Read more

Is it possible for you to use super glue too glue cap back on tooth?

Is it possible for you to use super glue too glue cap back on tooth?

Not advisable: Super glue or crazy glue, is not meant for intraoral use. Firstly, it would never seal the edges of the crown correctly, and secondly, you might need a new crown due to decay. In both instances you run the risk of more expensive treatment or loss of the tooth. Are you trying to save the fee of having a dentist examine the tooth and cement it correctly? Not a good idea. Will cost more in the end. ...Read more

My front tooth just fell off of my partial. What can I use to fix it until I can get to the dentist? Funds are limited. Thk u is there a glue that's safe to use?

Hello.: Hello. I am not a dentist; so any information I provide can‘t substitute for your dentist’s input. Please check with your dentist for his or her recommendation.
First off, don't recommend using glue or other house-hold adhesives to re-cement your tooth/ crown. There are products which can be used to re-cement crowns that have fallen off. Recapit, temparin, and dentemp are three such products. Follow the directions that come with the product. Make sure your tooth is clean and dry. If it is wet, it can impact the seal. You can clean the interior of the crown and make sure that it is also clean and dry. Check to make sure the crown fits evenly, before you cement it in. If not there might be a piece of cement on your tooth or in the crown that is the cause. This could be gently scraped off.
Take care. ...Read more

Can a broken tooth be glued back together by a dentist?

Not superglue. ...Read more
