Using splints, otherwise known as braces, are a great way for preventing and correcting any gum problems or aesthetic concerns of the teeth. A wide range of dental braces or dental splints are accessible to patients. The kind of braces utilised in each changing case will rely upon the patient's dental necessities, the prerequisites of the clinician, and the ideal result. One of the most often endorsed dental supports is the conventional level plane occlusal splint/brace, which fits over the maxillary or mandibular curve. There are various types of dental splints because of its capacity to treat a wide assortment of issues. 

Based on the concerns of the individual, the doctor will suggest one among the types of dental splints which can either be fixed or temporary. In this procedure an aesthetic transparent glass fibre is covered behind the teeth and is clung to teeth utilising resin substance. This fibre support isn't noticeable thus giving an amazing aesthetic appearance, almost as if nothing is placed over the teeth. This is a very delicate technique which can permit the doctors to reposition loose teeth carefully and close any spaces that might have as of late opened, and brace them together.

By carrying out the teeth splinting process, the nearby teeth are utilised for anchorage, making one strong unit and diminishing/removing any portability. Moreover, another benefit is in the event that the tooth requires extraction later on, the root can be partitioned (cut off) leaving the patient's normal crown in the brace, which is the most natural and aesthetic extension since the patient's own tooth is utilised.
