Abstract

BACKGROUND:

The periodontal splint is widely applied in clinic. The literatures and reports at home or abroad usually use the wedge to close the adjacent gap in the process of production.

OBJECTIVE:

To evaluate the clinical effect of silicone rubber materials in the restorative treatment of periodontal splint.

METHODS:

Thirty moderate periodontitis patients who were needed to receive the restorative treatment of periodontal splint. The patients were randomly divided into two groups: experimental and control group. In the experimental group, silicone rubber materials were applied to temporarily close the space between teeth, while in control group wedges were applied. After the space between teeth was closed, the routine operation was preformed and the operating time was recorded. After the establishment of periodontal splint, the prevalence of overhang and change of occlusion was measured, degree of satisfaction of doctors and patients was recorded by visual analogue rating sore, and then the clinical evaluation was completed.

RESULTS AND CONCLUSION:

Compared with control group, the prevalence of overhang and change of occlusion was less and the degree of satisfaction of doctors and patients was higher in experimental group. The operation time was equal in two groups. The clinical application of silicone rubber materials can be used as a complementary method in the restorative treatment of periodontal splint. To a certain extent, it can effectively reduce the prevalence of overhang, keep the change of occlusion and improve the satisfaction of patients.
