Odontalgia in association with an acutely fractured tooth is a frequent reason for emergency department presentation. We describe the case of a patient who presented with a painful fractured molar tooth and was treated with topical application of 2-octyl cyanoacrylate tissue adhesive, resulting in prompt relief of her discomfort and a good temporary functional and cosmetic outcome. This product may prove useful in treating similar dental emergencies when access to emergency dental care is unavailable.
