    Smile glue her teeth back in

    Hello. I don't quite follow the underlined part in this context.
    Can 'glue her teeth back in' mean 'put in her dentures'?
    Please help. Thank you.


    (She lost her teeth when a kid punched her in the mouth. She soaks her dentures in a cream-colored tub. She keeps the tub with the teeth in her own bathroom.)
    She's headed back in the direction of her bathroom, hopefully to glue her teeth back in.

    Yes. Dentures are held in place with a special type of adhesive.
