Default I broke my teeth: epoxy/superglue/human mouth question

So I broke my temporary teeth. They're attached to a plastic retainer-looking thing, and the whole contraption sticks to the roof of my mouth and provides a temporary illusion of teeth in the empty spaces.

Anyway tonight it snapped cleanly into two pieces. I could glue the two parts back together pretty flawlessly and I think that as long as I didn't try to get it to bear any load (which is how I broke it tonight) it'll last me a month or two until I get these implants restored.

My question is: what reasonably fast-setting plastic bonding agent would be best to use? Epoxy? Super-Glue? I know that superglue sees medical use in sealing cuts and blisters, so I wonder if it would be okay to walk around with it in my mouth.. once it's set and cured, of course. I think epoxy or even JB Weld would be stronger but would take longer to set and i dunno about having it in my mouth.


So does OT have any input?

yea if you use jb weld you'll be out of teeth for a couple days, i'd say super glue but i'm not an expert in retainer reconstruction or adhesives.

If it is a retainer thing use whatever is strongest and leave it out of your mouth till it cures.

Longer = better until you can get it professionally fixed IMO

Super glue is probably the best idea, as it's pretty non-toxic. But I dunno if it's going to taste like anything... I bet there's no flavor after it's dry. Except for the taste of fail 'cause you broke your damn teef.

Try going back to the dentist and have them melt the two halves back together.

super glue would be fine health and taste wise, but epoxy would probably work better, it's a lot stronger... you'd want it to be pretty fully cured though, and it might taste funny even then.

epoxy is good for gluing two metal things together, superglue can do plastics better but is generally weaker. Epoxy is much more toxic, but i don't know how bad it is when cured.

I doubt there is enough surface area to bond it together in any strong way so don't bother.

From an R/C modeler.

Superglue will degrade in water, or your mouth.
Superglue is too brittle. Don't

Of the epoxys, I would consider the JB Weld above any 5 to 30 min. stuff.
I would expect the JB weld to last (if the chewing does not snap it right away)

I would consider Goop (any type, it's all the same) or Shoe Goo, which is the same as Goop. Sticks like a M F er, but is flexable. Might not be enough area to get a good bond though.

I'm sure your dentist has the appropriate polymer.
Do some tests with glass chips glued on something and an apple as the food to test with, prior to F ing up your grill.

I would advise aginst repairing by inserting a Johnson Rod in your mouth, unless you want an overbite look like Freddy Mercury.

Ummm how bout you head over to your local CVS and pick up any of the multiple 2 part epoxy repair kits for fake teeth that they carry. When I had temps in while my veneers were getting made at the lab I had one fall out and used the stuff.

Its easy to use, 2 parts just like in the dentist office and just make sure the area is dry and clean and you use pressure.

Super Glue has amazing vertical strength but apply even small shearing forces and it will fail.... not something you want to have happen.

Epoxy is your best bet until you have it professionally repaired

I suppose for what it's worth I have venires or however you spell it on my 4 front teeth. AS for the temp breaking, there isn't really any simple easy fix that won't break easily. I'd say go to the dentist and see what they can do.

Wait, what happened to your teeth? Do you brush? Are there dentists in Moose****er, AK or wherever you are? What's happening???

EDIT: Read Semaj's post. That sucks. I had my four front teeth knocked out too. I was lucky I had braces. They kept the teeth so I knew where they were and held them in place after the dentist put them back.

Don't ever, ever drink pureed noodles. Do you have any idea how barfy that is? Hot dogs in the blender are okay though.

See dentist. Not sure what they use, but my mom got her fake tooth repaired recently and she was able to eat normally the same day.

Nothing on the picture? That's dissapointing My daughter loves that book and I always laugh when she grabs it, but she's too young (almost 1 year ) to know what an Otter is yet, so I haven't told her.
