Trauma to the teeth can be transmitted to the supporting structures, which get damaged. This can cause mobility of the teeth.Such mobile teeth may require splinting for a specified period of time till the supporting tissues heal and the tooth becomes stable.
Splinting is a procedure where the teeth are supported in its position for a period of time. This is done to teeth that are traumatized or teeth whose supporting structures are affected by disease, which prevents them from supporting the teeth. Splinting involves binding a group of teeth together so that the biting forces are shared by a large number of teeth instead of being born by the affected tooth.
Extremely thin fiber-glass band (0.05 mm / .0019″) to be used with our Fiber-Bond or any light-cured bonding agents. The band is 4mm wide, which gives 30% more adhesion power to the interdental area. Indicated for periodontally loosened teeth, post-traumatic mobility, surgical reimplantation, or even to reinforce temporary bridges. It can also be used as splinting material for orthodontic stabilization. Strength with a certain degree of flexibility and “tooth hugging” quality combine for an overall aesthetic and functional result. Minimum tooth preparation.
