Should my mom put that back in her mouth?

My mother, who is a good person and has a masters degree, accidentally swallowed a temporary bridge. Now she, um, has retrieved it. She wants to know if she can clean it herself (by soaking it in alcohol or something) and pop it back in, without calling the dentist about it, which she doesn't want to do because reasons. However, she's worried that she'll be unable to sterilize it properly and will make herself sick by putting in her mouth something that has been through her digestive tract.
She's counting on me, and therefore you, to find out how to clean it properly. Or to tell her there's no way. Anyone?
