Stabilization of Loose Teeth

Occlusal (biting) trauma occurs when either excessive force with function is present or compromised support of the teeth occurs (bone loss). This leads to mobile or loose teeth.  The teeth can be stabilized or splinted together to decrease the damage of the biting trauma.  

There are many techniques that can be utilized to accomplish stabilization from wire ligation to composite bonding (shown below).  Some of the techniques are intracoronal (within the tooth) or extracoronal (on the tooth surface).  

A complete occlusal (bite) evaluation is performed prior to recommending the most appropriate treatment for tooth mobility.
