Loose teeth are uncomfortable, especially when you try to eat. Teeth may become loose because of lost gum tissue, injury, orthodontic treatment, or pressure caused by tooth misalignment. A simple technique called periodontal splinting attaches weak teeth together, turning them into a single unit that is more stable and stronger than the single teeth by themselves.
The procedure is most commonly performed on the front teeth. The procedure is as simple as using composite material to attach, or splint, the loose teeth to the adjoining stable teeth. Tooth splinting is a common procedure that has gained popularity due to its effectiveness.
