Periodontal splinting: A review before planning a splint

AUTHOR(S): Dr. P Bhuvaneswari, Dr. Gowri T, Dr. Ram Kumar GD and Dr. Vanitha M
ABSTRACT:The treatment of periodontitis-associated tooth mobility may involve specific treatment for the different stages of periodontitis starting from simple occlusal therapy, splinting, non surgical phase therapy till surgical phase therapy. The treatment of the periodontitis usually involves nonsurgical and surgical periodontal treatments but sometimes may be limited to only the nonsurgical periodontal treatment. Splinting plays dual role both as primary therapeutic measure as well as adjuvant in stabilizing the teeth for future surgical therapy. Chalifoux stated that splinting saves a significant number of mobile teeth but requires a high degree of clinical skill and diagnostic expertise. This article discusses the overview of history of periodontal splinting, biomechanics, classifications, objectives, indication, contraindication, principles and various materials used for splinting.
