An implant is a titanium piece that is buried in the bone.If you have an implant,it is unlikely that you can see it or glue it.Are you referring to a crown or a cap?

The post is fine. The crown popped off. Can I get over the counter glue to reattach it is my question without going to the dentist? Nice creditials by the way :)

You can,but it will be a temporary cement only.Make sure that the crown is clean and dry ,and that you have removed all of the old cement first.The pharmacy has a couple of different cements like Dent temp or Temp bond that you can use.Do not overfill the crown and making sure the post and the inside of the crown is dry before cementing is important.They do not make permanent cement available for the public.Your dentist will have to permanently cement it.The permanent stuff is specially designed to bond to metal and tooth structure.The temp bond stuff can last for a week if the post or core is in good shape.Avoid eating Milk Duds and Jolly Ranchers.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!

Can I be having a reaction to these new materials? … read more
