I am sorry to hear about Whisper.
My name isXXXXX am a veterinarian, and will do my best to help.
Is this protruding tooth loose?
As long as the tooth pokes into his lip, this will not heal. You can try using an ointment containing hydrocortisone, like Cortaid, to reduce pain and swelling.
If the tooth is loose, it should be pulled. That way it will stop poking his hip, and loose teeth can get infected, and cause other problems.
If it is not loose, it can be smoothed and shortened with dental tools. He would have to be sedated for that.
I would not use Super Glue.
I am not seeing responses from you. I hope you can see what I am writing1
I will try another way to connect, if I do not hear from you soon.
Thank you for your information. He had most of his teeth out when he was a kitten due to gingivitis From what you have said I should take him to the vet and see if his tooth can be shortened His tooth is not loose.
Yes, the tooth could be gently sanded off and polished to make it shorter.
