Some years ago I damaged one of my front teeth falling on an icy road. A couple of weeks ago I foolishly turned a tap on a compressed air cylinder and got hit on the same tooth by the metal fixing on the end of the short hose. Soon after this the tooth fell out. Several people told me I needed a false tooth.

Today I made a false tooth out of modelling clay and superglued it into place.

It looks great. I will have to fine-tune the design, but it's looking hopeful.

Can anyone give me accurate and informed health advice on superglueing a Fimo false tooth to my rotten gums?


Please don't mention dentists. I don't do dentists.

Not gonna work. If anything, it would have to be to the teeth on either side.

Dude. Go to a dentist, George W.

You're just about the only person in the world I'll listen to on this.

I'm pondering dentist.

That just sounds really painful.

And the only thing I can add is to keep an eye on it. This sounds like a really good way to get a really bad infection. And infections in the guns/jaw spread and do a lot of damage really quickly.

The lip did get temporarily stuck to the gum. I tried to laugh.

Yah, waiting till it rots under there from food decay, leading to an infection is way worse, trust me.

Have you experienced this rapid spread of infection or is it dentists sales talk?

Vit C has done me well on face swelling jaw infections.

if you can get it to work there should not be any problems, neither the glue or clay will get into your blood.
though people will call you insane.

Well it has fallen out already but I was expecting that. Long enough for a funeral is all I ask.

Not personally but have seen it with a close friend. I lost all 6 of my front top teeth to a metal bar in 4th grade and have had my share of root canals from it...after that I just took good care of the replacements and swore off the dentist unless necessary.

Gum infections spreading to the jaw are no joke. They hit your blood stream and sinuses and brain quickly and from there you'd be too far gone for a dentist to help...that would be an extended hospital stay.

I don't know about the FIMO, but my sister is a dentist and once told me that superglue is toxic and should not be used as a dental adhesive.

(Sorry for mentioning the word 'dentist.')

Did your friend consume enough Vit C to create digestional wind?

I find that works for tooth related infections.

Superglue is not the way to go. I would mention the 'D' word but it is obvious that you are not enthralled with that idea whatsoever. First, the super glue bond will fail as the cells material it has bonded to goes through its life cycle. Second, you said "modelling clay" so I am assuming it is some sort of plasticene. If it is porous at all, you will create places for very bad bacteria to hang out, festrer and eventually infiltrate the rest of your body, especially if your gums are as bad as you say.

The proper way to mount a toot is to either bridge it to the adjoining teeth or secure it to an implanted stud which has been placed and allowed for the bone to build up around it. The metals are usually titanium or similar such that they are inert and your body will not reject them. If the gums or jaw are severely rotted, a bone graft may be in order to rebuild the material and then there is a 2-3 month waiting period (at least when I had one done) for the implant to really set up within the bone before the crown is attached. The screw has a taper on it like and the crown a mating taper. If you have ever used a Morse Taper drill bit or a milling machine /lathe you will know that a tapered mating surface, when correctly aligned can become extremely well bonded even without an adhesive. Add a little adhesive to it and it is practically water tight and there until you want to remove it using some sort of bond-breaker, heat? Other?

Why not the 'D' word? Is it a monetary thing or a belief of some sort or a past bad experience? I hope you can get it sorted out. Dental issues can lead to death if left untreated or improperly cared for. If it is money, suck up the pride and seek some help in your community. It really is not worth the possibility of cutting your life far shorter than it should be.

I did feel sick afterwards which I attributed to the superglue. (Loctite Gel).
