Splinting is one of the oldest forms of aids to periodontal therapy. By redistribution of forces on the affected teeth the splint minimizes the effects caused by loss of support. Splinting teeth to each other allows weakened teeth to be supported by neighbouring teeth. This presentation reviews the rationale, techniques, advantages and ill effects of stabilization of teeth by splinting as an aid to periodontal therapy. With the acceptance and clinical predictability of adhesive procedures, the use of conservative bonding techniques to splint teeth offers a useful alternative to more invasive restorative procedures. Loss of tooth-supporting structures results in tooth mobility. Increased tooth mobility adversely affects function, aesthetics, and the patient’s comfort. Splints are used to overcome all these problems. When faced with the dilemma of how to manage periodontally compromised teeth, splinting of mobile teeth to stronger adjacent teeth is a viable option. This prolongs the life expectancy of loose teeth, gives stability for the periodontium to reattach, and improves comfort, function and aesthetics.
