Broken off partial tooth

User Level:

Posted by: clutzy78  (1 years ago)
Hello all. I have a partial for my top front teeth and one of the teethe broke off when I got jumped. It is a clean break and I still have the tooth. What I am wondering is what would a dentist recommend to use to attach the tooth back on my partial, other than super glue. I do not have $85 for a dentist to do it and no insurance.
Thanks

Not sure if super glue is a good idea, since the chemicals from the glue might seep into your mouth in the long run? There's an "Ask a Dentist" tab on the This is Dentistry website, it says there that you can ask an online dentist and get free advice. Maybe you can try asking what's the most cost-effective solution for your broken off partial?

Good luck!

Dear I will suggest not to glue it up but take out that teeth or it will hurt you.

Nothing will work reliably for more than a few days. If you coat the thing with Super Glue, the dentist will not be able to reattach it accurately, Dentists must make a matrix and cure new acrylic for a reliable repair. You do not have the equipment at home to do this.

Yeah, I don't think i will be using super glue. I am looking into a home repair kit, for the cost. I have looked at many reviews and I am going to go that route. However, the product says for use on Acrylic teeth. My partial has the pink acrylic "top" and the metal wiring. I am wondering if my tooth is made of acrylic or porcelain. How do I tell the difference.

It is rare for denture teeth to be made of porcelain these days.

I am sorry to have to tell you that you are wasting your time buying such a kit, but do what you want.
