I actually have done that more than once.....lol. I added a few things to my medicine chest first though. Big green sticky smelly tobacco like substances....haha. I did not do as good of a job as a dentist might as I still have a few fragments on a couple of the molars that will need to be taken care of one day. Teeth are easy to break with pliers.
