Hello, I am Dr. Peel. I will try my best to answer your question.
Can you explain further? What are you expecting to actually do with your natural tooth? Denture adhesive is designed to increase the suction of a full denture on the palate or ridge. It is not the right product to use for an individual tooth.
It will not hold an individual tooth in a space in a denture.
I hope this helps. If not just explain further and I will continue to help.

the only thing you can use is crazy glue but it is only a temporary fix to replace a tooth in an existing denture with a tooth missing if it has fallen out. It is not to be used with a natural tooth. There is really no way to glue the natural tooth to the socket or old denture.
