Hi, hope someone can help me. My splint cost over $1,000 and a little part of it just chipped off last night. Does anyone know any non-toxic glue/bonding/anything that can be used to repair a chipped splint (I have the chip that came off). I already tried Fixodent but that only held the piece together for an hour. I was thinking about going to Walmart today to look for something. Thanks!
J-B KWIK - available at most hardware stores. Made by J-B Weld.
It stays pliable for about 2 minutes after mixing, sets in just 4 minutes, and cures fully in 4 hours.
Before it sets, you can clean up with soap and water.
Mix two equal amounts and mix with a toothpick. Apply no more than enough to cover the surface to bond together. Squeeze pieces together for 5 minutes until it sets up. Do not put it in your mouth until it has cured over night. Rinse under cool water before putting it in your mouth.
Make sure you buy KWIK with the black and orange tubes. The other products are not food grade quality.
Walmart does carry this. Good Luck.

Personally, I wouldn't try to repair it yourself. If it was custom made for you, it needs to be "custom" repaired by your dentist. If the "repair" is even a milimetre off, this could throw things out of wack with the fit.
