    Mother terrified of dentists used SUPERGLUE to stick her teeth back in her mouth for TEN YEARS
    • Angie Barlow, 48, became scared of dentists after her mother's throat cancer was found when she was having a tooth removed
    • For more than 10 years, she would superglue teeth back into her mouth
    • Glue eroded 90% of the bone supporting her teeth in her upper jaw
    • Was forced to spend her life savings on procedures to restore her smile
    A mother was so terrified of going to the dentist she used superglue to stick her broken teeth back into her mouth when they fell out.

    Angie Barlow, 48, performed dangerous DIY dentistry on herself for more than a decade.

    Eventually, the toxic chemicals in the glue meant she lost 90 per cent of the bone supporting her teeth in her upper jaw, and she was forced to spend her life savings on treatment.

    Dentists had to remove most of her teeth, insert titanium pins into her mouth in order to screw on false teeth and restore her smile.

    Angie Barlow, 48, was so terrified of going to the dentist she used superglue to stick her broken teeth back into her mouth when they fell out, which led to the erosion of the bone in her upper jaw

    Ms Barlow, a professional dog walker from Altrincham, Greater Manchester, said she became too frightened of seeking professional help for her teeth after she lost her mother to throat cancer.

    She said: 'I've always been scared of the dentist because my mum died at 34 from throat cancer.

    'She had a tooth out, and that's how they found she had cancer.

    'That fear has always been in the back of my mind. You just get your mindset and you think, you "don't go". You don't make that phone call.'

    Ms Barlow's smoking had damaged her teeth and they fell out often.

    But instead of going to the dentist, she resorted to using household superglue to fix them.

    Speaking before an operation to correct the damage, Ms Barlow said: 'When the tooth comes out, I just put a little bit of glue and try and hold it in place to keep it, so I don't have a gap in my teeth.

    'I used glue on the top of the tooth, and then I put it back in place until the glue is set.'

    She said she became reclusive because of her embarrassment over her unsightly smily.

    She said: 'I just feel so self-conscious that I don't go anywhere really.

    'Even going in the shop, I feel embarrassed.

    'They'd be like, nudge, nudge, look at her, you know.

    'Even in front of my son I'm embarrassed to sit and have a conversation with him.'

    I used glue on the top of the tooth, and then I put it back in place until the glue is set
    Angie Barlow, 48
    Dr Serpil Djemal, consultant and clinical lead at Kings College Hospital, said: 'It's probably one of the worst cases that I've seen and certainly one of the worse cases of desperation, to superglue a tooth back in the mouth.'

    Eventually, Ms Barlow decided to have her smile rebuilt, spending her entire life's savings on having the work done.

    The procedure was followed in a new BBC documentary about teeth.

    During the operation 11 of her top teeth were extracted and six titanium screws were inserted into her jaw with 12 new teeth permanently attached.

    She is more outgoing after the treatment as she no longer needs to hide her smile, she said.

    She said: 'It's wonderful isn't it, I feel amazing, and there's no hands over my mouth or embarrassment.

    'People have said they notice a difference in me. My friends, they're just like "oh my God, you're more outgoing".'

    Superglue's marketing department is high-fiving each other right about now.

    Maybe having a choice between Sanji and Raheem contributed to her fear. When it comes to your health, the slightest thing could prevent you from going. And the whole cancer thing, that would've got me into the highest priced dentist I could find. Tooth problems are near the worst.

    Had a crown come off on me a few years ago.
    Made sure everything was dry, drop of superglue, hold it in place for a few minutes, good as new.:)
    Saved me a dentist trip and whatever it would have cost.

    Oh, you know they would have made a huge production just for that. I'd really love to know what they would have charged you just to glue that back on.
