Periodontal Splinting (Weak Teeth)
 

PERIODONTAL SPLINTING AT BROCK DENTAL

Teeth become loose because of lost gum tissue, injury, orthodontic treatment, or pressure caused by tooth misalignment.  Loose teeth are uncomfortable, especially when you try to eat food or chew gum. The feeling of the tooth pulling away from the gum is enough to send chills down your spine. It seems like an eternity, waiting for either the tooth to become loose enough to be extracted or strong enough to no longer be a problem.

The Procedure

A new technique called periodontal splinting attaches weak teeth together, turning them into a single unit that is stable and stronger than the single teeth by themselves. The procedure is most commonly performed on the front teeth.  It is as simple as using composite material to attach, or splint the loose teeth to the adjoining stable teeth. Tooth splinting is a common procedure that has gained popularity due to its effectiveness.
