Splinting is a procedure by which a tooth resistance to an applied force, is increased by joining it, to a neighboring tooth or teeth, is a well-accepted clinical treatment used to control irreversible tooth mobility through mechanical stabilization. It has the advantage of stabilizing mobile teeth by forming a firm unit, minimizing tooth mobility, and greatly improving the occlusal function of the teeth. Splinting is considered an important component of a periodontal treatment plan because of its ability to provide coaptive stability to the teeth and greatly improve the outcome and prognosis of teeth affected by periodontal disease. Splinting is regarded as an integral part of periodontal therapy because it is used to maintain periodontally migrated teeth that have been repositioned and also used before periodontal surgery to stabilize mobile teeth during postsurgical healing as such stabilization creates a more favorable environment for periodontal repair.
