Periodontal diseases often cause loose teeth. When the comfort of chewing is clearly limited, the procedure of teeth splinting is applied, which connects single teeth together, forming a block that supports wobbly teeth, as well as prevents them from breaking down, pulling out or shifting. Teeth can be splinted for a certain period of time, e.g. after a surgical procedure, or permanently.
The following solutions are applied:
- splinting systems (Splint-Lock, Fiber-Splint, Fiber-Cor, Ever-Stick),
- glass fibre + composite material,
- combined prosthetic crowns or bridges.
