Use of n-butyl 2-cyanoacrylate tissue adhesive to splint traumatised teeth in the emergency department.

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.
