Abstract

The splinting of traumatised teeth can be difficult in the emergency department where access to dentally trained clinicians and equipment may be limited. We report the use of a readily available medical tissue adhesive (n-butyl 2-cyanoacrylate) as a material for temporary dental splinting, and discuss its suitability for the task.
