Periodontal disease has many negative effects, one of the most serious being tissue destruction. When the gum and jaw bone tissues surrounding and protecting your teeth are lost, then your teeth become loose and more likely to fall out. Losing teeth can create additional bone loss as well as difficulty chewing and speaking, not to mention how it alters your appearance. To prevent tooth loss and to help tighten your teeth, we offer periodontal splinting.
In essence, periodontal splinting connects several loose teeth into a strong, single unit. Having teeth secured together like this not only reduces the risk for tooth loss, but it helps to evenly distribute bite forces. We may bond a wire or a fiber-reinforced composite resin to the teeth in order to stabilize them and protect your smile.
