Splinting is a technique used to stabilize teeth which have become loose as a result of losing the supporting bone around them to gum disease. Excessive mobility can cause discomfort when biting and eating
We will tell you if your teeth are mobile enough to require splinting. Another factor that comes into play is the status of the gum disease.
