Periodontal Splinting in South Delhi

Periodontal disease is a chronic inflammation and infection of the gums and surrounding tissue. It is the major cause of about 70 percent of adult tooth loss, affecting three out of four persons at some point in their life – Periodontal Splinting in South Delhi. Periodontal diseases include gingivitis and periodontitis.

Periodontal disease may cause teeth to become mobile. As a way of stabilizing the teeth, the teeth may be attached to one another with a splint. This is often done with composite resin and a nylon mesh – Periodontal Splinting in South Delhi.

Indications of splinting

  • Migration of teeth
  • Stabilize moderate to advance tooth mobility that cannot be treated by other means
  • Stabilize teeth in secondary occlusal trauma
  • Prevent tipping or drifting of the teeth
  • Prevent extrusion of unopposed teeth
  • Stabilize teeth following acute trauma
  • Stabilize teeth following orthodontic movement

Types of Teeth Splinting Treatment in India

Teeth may become loose and unstable due to several factors including severe bone loss, gum recession, trauma, drifting teeth and traumatic occlusion (heavy biting forces).  Several treatment options exist to stabilize weak periodontally involved teeth.  These include Intracoronal splinting & Extracoronal splinting – Teeth Splinting Treatment in India

Intracoronal splinting 

It is a semi-permanent procedure involving preparing a channel inside the teeth and filling the connecting channels with a “kevlar like” white ribboned or a wire.  Then, a white composite filling is placed into the channel preparation, covering the Ribboned or wire.  Afterwards, the bite (occlusion) needs to be checked and adjusted, so that all the teeth hit with equal force

Extracoronal splinting

It is a completely reversible procedure.  The weak teeth are connected with a bonded white composite filling material on the outside of the teeth.  Sometimes, a wire, metal plate or Ribbon is encorporated with the bonded filling material on the outside of the teeth for additional support.  This type of splint usually does not last as long as an Intracoronal Splint and is subject to fracture more readily.  It is usually used for a more short term need.

Treatment For Mobile Teeth | Teeth Splinting in Delhi

Do nothing 

this is not recommended as the gum disease will likely progress leading to loss of teeth. As the teeth become more mobile they are likely to drift therefore resulting in the change of the bite and creating spaces between the teeth and at their necks- Teeth Splinting in Delhi

See a dentist to stabilize the gum disease, the teeth may appear firmer and then it is up to you whether you want to pro-actively have them splinted.

Following stabilization of periodontal disease to have orthodontic treatment to align the teeth. 

Have the teeth extracted and replaced with a bridge

This is a suitable option as long as the teeth supporting the bridge have sufficient tooth structure and adequate bone support.

Have the teeth extracted and have implants placed 

Prior to having implants (which involves surgery), the patient must have the periodontal condition stabilized to reduce failure.  Not all patients are suitable for implants.

Have the teeth extracted and have dentures placed 

This is a removable appliance (advised to remove at night) replacing missing teeth and soft tissues.

Have the teeth splinted 

This can be carried out using various techniques.  This is least invasive, reliable form of treatment. Unfortunately, many patients are not presented with this treatment option and have teeth extracted which could have potentially been delayed.

How is Splinting done? – Teeth Splinting in Delhi

There are several methods when it comes to splinting teeth.  However, many can lead to failure due to the intricate nature of the treatment and compromised condition of the teeth.

The treatment recommended is using Ever Stick Perio.  This is a bundle of pre-impregnated unidirectional glass fibres allowing us to reliably splint teeth using the minimally invasive dentistry concept. This offers a long lasting, minimally invasive and a comfortable solution for periodontally compromised patients – Teeth Splinting in Delhi

The aesthetic glass fibre is hidden behind the teeth and is bonded to teeth using aesthetic resin (after a shade match).  This fibre splint is not visible therefore providing excellent aesthetics.  This is a very technique sensitive procedure which can allow us to carefully reposition mobile teeth (close any spaces that may have recently opened up) and splint them together.  By splinting the teeth, the adjacent teeth are used for anchorage creating one solid unit and reducing/eliminated any mobility.  Furthermore, an added bonus is if the tooth does require extraction in the future, the root can be sectioned off (amputated) leaving the patients natural crown in the splint (aesthetically the most natural bridge as the patient’s own tooth is used).

Contraindications of periodontal splinting

  • When there severe tooth mobility in the presence of periodontal inflammation or trauma.
  • There are an insufficient number of non-mobile teeth to adequately stabilize the mobile teeth.
  • Inadequate oral hygiene
