Your natural teeth are an important part of your oral health. Not only do they give you a nice smile and aid you in chewing and speaking, but they also support and stimulate the jaw bone, preventing it from shrinking. However, conditions like periodontal disease can destroy the gum and bone tissues that surround your teeth, making them loose. If your loose teeth do not receive some form of stabilization, they can fall out and cause several problems with the function of your bite and the beauty of your smile.
At our office, we prevent loose teeth from falling out of your mouth by placing a periodontal splint. In short, this splint is a fiber-reinforced ribbon or a stabilizing wire that bonds several weak, loose teeth together. When this is done, the teeth become a single unit that has increased stability and distributes chewing forces more evenly. Periodontal splinting prevents tooth loss and gives your mouth a chance to secure these teeth in place. Please call our dental practice if you would like to benefit from periodontal splinting.
