    PVA would definitely dissolve when wet, and Araldite is highly toxic. Seriously, wait till you can see your dentist!

    PVA won't stick a retainer back together!!

    Araldite (by Bostik) is your best bet, but you will have to wait for 24 hours before you can use the brace again. It sticks absolutely everything - it's amazing stuff.

    (Araldite, etc.) are used for many purposes at CERN. Preparation of them can cause severe skin irritations, and fumes should not be inhaled.

    So does that mean it's safe when it's dried? Apparently it's only toxic if ingested, but when it's dry it turns solid anyway.

    You don't generally put stuff at CERN into your mouth.....
    It might be ok, but if bits dissolve you could be in some minor trouble. It could also be irritant.

    You can buy dental repair kits at boots for a short term fix. You should make an appointment with your dentist/orthodontist though because you could be putting your treatment at risk (if everything isn't at the right tension blah blah blah)
