My dental bridge came a loose will it hurt me if I super glue it back in? Should I go to the hospital?

Is it easy for a dentist to tap off a dental bridge that's cemented permanently if he needs to do it?

Is it easy for a dentist to tap off a dental bridge that's cemented permanently if he needs to do it?

Not really: Crown and bridges that are cemented permanently are not designed to be removed. The usual method of removal is cutting the bridge (and thus destroying it) to remove it in an effort to prevent damage to the underlying teeth.

If the bridge still fits well on your teeth it can be easily recemented by a local dentist. Placing superglue on either the teeth or the bridge may necessitate fabrication of a new bridge, which is more expensive than just having it recemented. ...Read more
