Tooth fixation

Tooth fixation

After we carefully examine your loose tooth, with additional X-rays, we can determine its survival rate. In worst case scenario it will be extracted. But, if the tooth can be preserved then, on the same day, custom splint is made. Splint is a specially made bar, usually from resin, connecting adjacent teeth with loose one in the middle, helping him stay in place while its root consolidates with bone. Once it’s fixated in place that’s it, time will do the rest. Check-ups are on monthly basis. After some time if everything is solid splint bar can be removed.
