Gum disease is damaging to both your gum and your teeth. As your periodontal disease progresses, your teeth may become loose and require stabilization. Our dentists at Regal Dentistry provide periodontal splinting to support your teeth and help you improve your oral function. Give us a call at 951-643-4405 to make your appointment with Dr. Joel Manalese and associates, and learn more about periodontal splinting in Riverside, California.
As specific teeth lose supporting bone and gum tissue, they weaken and become loose. Periodontal splinting helps these loose teeth to remain stable in your mouth. A periodontal split consists of a stabilizing wire or fiber-reinforced ribbon, which is bonded across the outside of several teeth. This links the teeth together, causing them to rely upon their collective strength and stabilizing all the teeth in that link.
Periodontal splints become necessary when proper hygiene and dental procedures fail to diminish the infection enough for the teeth to stabilize on their own.
Our caring team at Regal Dentistry is eager to provide you with the treatments you need to enjoy a healthy, beautiful smile. If you are suffering from gum disease, or would like to learn more about the benefits of periodontal splinting, please contact our practice today to schedule a consultation with our dental professionals.
