dental adhesives

A couple of people mentioned using super glue to hold a tooth in place, which is supposedly not very effective. One person mentioned " dental adhesives ". What are these and where do you get them?.

Hi,
Please don't use super glue.  It contains a cyanide acid and can be very destructive to normal tissue and used too often can make you really sick.  It's not a good substitute for dental adhesive.  Toothpaste  or vaseline (you can mix it with cornstarch) works well until you can get to a dentist and have it done properly but there really isn't much way around that.  Nothing on the OTC market works on a permanent basis.

Dental adhesives are used in the bonding process, I don't believe that you can get them in open market. Also the conditions needed to make these work really puts its use way out of average persons hand.
