A New Technique For Splinting Traumatized Anterior Dental Or Dento alveolar Segment. A Clinical Study
Running Title: Splinting Traumatized Anterior Teeth
Back ground: Many different splinting techniques have been described in dental trauma articles. Wire-composite splint, Orthodontic splint, TTS splint, Resin splint, Kevlar/fiberglass splint (fiberglass), Self-etching and bonding material, Suture splint. We describe here a new technique for splinting traumatized teeth and alveolar bone. To evaluate the simplicity and reliability of cold-cured acrylic resin immediate splinting in the management of traumatized anterior teeth.
Results: A total number of (46) patients with traumatized dental or dento-alveolar segment due to accident or operation were managed with immediate cold-cured acrylic resin splint without the need for anesthesia for fixation, the study carried out from January (2008–2014). Forty four dento-alveolar trauma patients, 2 patients following upper dento-alveolar osteotomy, 2 splints dropped down (2) days post-splinting, the splints removed (14-21) days.
Conclusion: this new technique in the management of dento-alveolar trauma is a reliable, simple, easy, less technical, painless and less time consuming procedure.
