If you suffer from the effects of gum disease, our periodontist can help you determine the treatment you need to achieve a healthier smile. Gum disease can take a toll on both gingival tissue and on teeth, so your teeth can become loose as the disease progresses. Dr. Hanasab is pleased to provide periodontal stabilization treatments, including splinting at Wong Dental. As teeth lose supporting bone tissue, they can become weakened and loose. A splint consists of a stabilizing wire or fiber-reinforced ribbon being bonded across the outside of several teeth, linking them together so they can rely on their collective strength. The goal of all periodontal treatment is to halt the progression of the disease and to allow the mouth to heal. Sometimes proper hygiene and dental procedures can diminish the infection enough that splinting is not necessary. In the case that the teeth cannot stabilize on their own, a splint may be applied.
Our team at our dental practice is eager to help you find the treatment you need so that you can enjoy a healthy and beautiful smile for many years to come. If you are suffering from gum disease or other periodontal disorders and would like to learn more about periodontal splints in Covina, California, we encourage you to contact our team today to schedule a consultation. We look forward to meeting you!
