What is the procedure?

The dentition of teeth is the combination of several teeth into a single system for the purpose of fixing the dentition. Stability of teeth is achieved due to special orthodontic equipment.

In the early stages of treatment, this method can completely elim

inate the problem, but in the chronic course of the disease, the lumbar teeth are resorted to to ease the load and to use the reserve possibilities of periodontal disease.

How the teeth look before and after splinting

Shinning of mobile teeth is temporary and permanent. To the temporary resort at the early stages of gum disease, with trauma, after the displacement of the dentition.

Permanent orthopedic tires are installed for reliable fixation of teeth at the present risk of their loss. Many patients have difficulty agreeing to permanent designs because of a number of their shortcomings:

  • lack of aesthetic appeal;
  • heavy work;
  • of high cost;
  • need to prepare a hard tooth tissue.

The doctor's task, if necessary, is to convince the patient that the prescribed treatment is the only possible one. But despite this, the temporary tires got more obvious spread.

Indications for installing tires

The procedure is prescribed in case of severe problems with the dentition or the presence of factors that can change it. The indications for the installation of orthodontic equipment include:

  • Chronic periodontitis

    Chronic periodontitis

    tooth mobility caused by trauma;

  • bare teeth roots;
  • presence of pronounced gingival pockets;
  • gum bleeding, which is a sign of gingivitis;
  • diseases of peri-toothed tissues, in particular periodontitis;
  • formation of dental deposits in the root area of ​​the tooth;
  • the need for surgical intervention in the periodontal and root roots;
  • dentition or non-standard teeth position.

The orthodontist during the examination will be able to assess the situation and prescribe exactly the treatment and type of splinting, which will have the most effective effect for stabilizing the dentition and retaining the teeth.

About the indications and contraindications to the splinting of teeth in periodontal diseases will tell the doctor orthodontist:

Materials used

Materials used for the manufacture of orthodontic equipment must meet a number of requirements:

  • the possibility of firm fixation on the teeth;
  • ability to stabilize moving teeth;
  • no mechanical effects on teeth and surrounding tissues;
  • no obstruction to chewing function;
  • ability to preserve the patient's diction;
  • attractive appearance;
  • no obstruction factors for oral hygiene.

The most common use of fiberglass, silk and polyethylene because of their invisibility on the teeth. But due to the high strength of aramid yarn, it is often assigned to install permanent tires.

Modes of immobilization

As already mentioned, splinting can be permanent and temporary, which often determines which teeth have been affected, and the degree of their mobility.

Fixed prosthesis

crown splinting

Fixed dentures have a long service life, they are very reliable in nature. The form of the design is developed during the treatment in accordance with the individual characteristics of the patient.

A number of factors are taken into account, for example, the number of dropped teeth, the stage of the disease, and age. The main drawback of this method is the need to grind the upper layer of teeth, including healthy ones. At the initial stages of periodontitis, crown splinting is not prescribed.

The most popular and effective type of prosthetics is clasp, as their inner part is equipped with thin arches that clasp each tooth separately. This makes the tire as stable as possible, the chewing reflex is not disturbed. The advantage of clasp prostheses is the ability to fasten missing teeth.

Using fiberglass

fiberglass bus Splinting teeth with fiberglass is a relatively new technology, which has already proved itself with the best hand. The process of laying the tire begins with a horizontal groove grinding along the entire length of the future tire.

It is important to bind together not only the mobile teeth, but also stable, to redistribute the load from weakened teeth to healthy teeth.

Fiberglass tape is laid in the furrow, which is filled with a composite. On the lower incisors the tape is attached from the rear, usually using fangs. The upper teeth are usually lined in front.

For greater adhesion on chewing teeth, the tape is pulled from above. The photo shows the process of laying tires on the lower front teeth.

glass fiber splicing process

Glass fiber tape is good because it is invisible, it looks aesthetically pleasing. With its use, it is possible to eliminate the space between the teeth. If necessary, the tape can be removed, and all irregularities can be corrected with a seal that does not affect the overall appearance. There are many advantages, because of which preference is given to this method:

  • photo before and after splitting a chance to keep badly loosened teeth without the risk of premature atrophy of bone tissues;
  • minimal tooth trauma, as it is not required to grind and remove pulp;
  • uniform distribution of the load on all teeth;
  • esthetic removal of interdental spaces;
  • provides complete oral care.

In the case of cable lining the process is completely identical with the only deviation in the form of the material used. Instead of fiberglass, a high-strength aramid yarn is placed in the furrow.

Removable immobilization

clasp splint Removable prosthetics are used in the absence of one or more teeth. Prosthesis is made on an individual project, so the equipment fixes loose teeth, and in the missing places fills the gaps.

Usually, transparent plastic or metal structures are used, but the choice of material and shape depends directly on the problem, patient characteristics and a number of other factors.

In some cases, removable immobilization is the only appropriate method of treatment. This may be due to the recovery period after a jaw fracture.

The prosthesis secures the dentition and does not allow it to break during the healing process.

What do ordinary people say?

Splinting teeth may frighten some patients, but testimonials once again prove that the installation of orthodontic equipment effectively affects the treatment, contributes to the preservation of teeth. Modern methods make it possible to make the tires almost invisible, which looks aesthetically pleasing.

I was very frightened when my teeth began to stagger, but somehow it was not possible to visit the dentist until one of the teeth fell out. Fortunately, the doctor not only strengthened the loose teeth with the help of splinting, but also installed an artificial tooth in place of the fallen out.

The fiberglass and the material of the new tooth have merged so much in color with their own that no one can notice the difference. Itself I am amazed with durability of a teeth after procedure. Very useful technique of treatment.

Valentina, Irkutsk

My appearance plays a big role in the duty of service, I am the head of a large firm, but I have problems with periodontium, heredity. Despite the constant adherence to preventive measures, teeth still began to lose stability.

The physician appointed a splint. I thought the whole mouth would be in iron, I began to read a lot about the materials. In the end, we used fiberglass. The result is stunning, the smile resembles a natural smile, the teeth are strong.

Constantine, Moscow

I'm afraid of dentists to the horror, but when I applied for help, the condition was critical. Almost all the front teeth began to stagger, afraid to lose them.

The dentist advised non-removable dentures that were mounted over my teeth. Own had to grind, I must admit, the procedure is not a pleasant one. But now I feel comfortable, I can eat apples without fear of being left without teeth.

Ksenia, Sochi

I have been preparing for prosthetics for a long time. After an active career in boxing with my teeth I can not boast. There was a question of choosing between fiberglass and dentures, the dentist recommended the latter. Trusted and did not regret. I have been going for seven years, and so far no complaints. A huge thanks to the lying doctor.

What determines the cost of

The prices for splinting vary depending on the material chosen, the method of equipment installation, the chosen clinic, the degree of neglect of the case.

Approximate prices:

  1. The cheapest is installing the fiberglass tires , but the price varies depending on the teeth that require fixation. The cost of the shining prosthesis procedure on the front teeth will come out in the region of 7000 rubles. Chewing teeth will cost about 3000 rubles.
  2. Using of crowns is much higher. The cost of manufacturing them for one tooth starts at 3,500 rubles. Since it is necessary to use several crowns when splitting movable teeth, the cost will increase severalfold. This applies both to permanent crowns and to removable ones, and largely depends on the individual approach in the manufacture of prostheses.
  3. The most expensive method is clasp prosthetics , the cost of orthodontic equipment will be at least 25,000 rubles.

And although many may be frightened by the word "splinting", this is often the best solution, which will let you not reverse the process, but significantly reduce the speed of its effect on the dentition.

Most patients respond positively to the effect achieved, even given large investments. Since the treatment takes place over a long period, the required costs are usually spread out over the entire term.
