If you suffer from periodontitis, the advanced stage of gum disease, then you may experience gum and bone tissue deterioration. This can present a problem even after we heal your mouth of gum disease because the gum and jawbone surround and protect your teeth. Without this support, your teeth can become loose and may fall out altogether. In order to renew the strength of your bite, we offer periodontal splinting.
Splinting essentially connects all of the loose teeth together. Doing so not only reduces the risk for tooth loss, but it also helps to more evenly distribute bite forces. We will splint the teeth by bonding either a wire or a fiber-reinforced composite ribbon to your teeth. With periodontal splinting, we help to restore the health and strength of your smile. Call our dental team today if you want to learn more about the benefits of periodontal splinting.
