Periodontal Splinting

Loose teeth are uncomfortable, especially when you try to eat food or chew gum. The feeling of the tooth pulling away from the gum is enough to send chills down your spine. It seems like an eternity, waiting for either the tooth to become loose enough to be extracted or strong enough to no longer be a problem.

Teeth become loose because of lost gum tissue, injury, orthodontic treatment, or pressure caused by tooth misalignment. A new technique called periodontal splinting attaches weak teeth together, turning them into a single unit that is 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.

Life is too short to live with loose teeth.

What Our Clients Say About Us

    "

    Elk Dental Center provides a great experience in dental care. Extremely caring staff and doctors. Most refreshingly, they don’t over-diagnose treatments like other dentists - several times they’ve told me “You have a very early stage cavity that could need a filling in the future, but for now let’s watch it until your next exam.” Well worth the drive to get there from Plymouth!

    Always friendly! They make sure you are comfortable too - if you’re afraid of going to the dentist, go to Elk Dental Center, they’re a great team. Receptionists are always helpful and courteous. The dentist does a thorough job and which ever one you see, all are very knowledgeable and have time for any questions. I’ve been a patient there for quite a few years - it can’t be too bad...I go every 6 months!

    I've been going to Elk Dental Center for 35 years. I had to go somewhere else for awhile because of insurance and couldn't wait to get back. All staff is professional, friendly, and truly caring. The dental work itself is high quality. They never "over prescribe" any work, and the cash discount is greatly appreciated. They also made extra effort to get me in on short notice when I've had problems.

    Always so polite and pleasant to there customers. Very satisfied, I have been going to dentist off and on for thirty-five years. Moved out of state, then when moved back went back to Elk Dental Center. We drive two hours both way to get dental services at Elk Dental Center.
