Loose teeth are uncomfortable, especially when you try to eat food or chew gum.
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 and loose 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 but can be done on back teeth as well. The procedure is as simple as using composite material to attach, or splint, the loose teeth to the adjoining stable teeth. Most of the times an orthodontic wire is used to attach the teeth together. Tooth splinting is a common procedure that has gained popularity due to its effectiveness.
Life is too short to live with loose teeth.
