Abstract :

Splinting is a common treatment approach in dental practice to obtain stability and eliminate mobility. It has also been shown that splinting can decrease pain and discomfort during biting and chewing. In addition, splinting of the mobile tooth is recommended before regenerative periodontal treatment to obtain maximum benefits from the treatment. It was our experience that SRP instrumentation was made easier by the splinting due to the prevention of tooth mobility. As another benefit, the patient was no longer complaining about chewing or biting after splinting. With the aid of pink-splinting clinicians will enhance the esthetic results after periodontal treatment in patients with periodontal disease. In addition, they will also manage the papilla loss and its effects in patients. This technique may be life-saving in patients with aggressive periodontitis.
