An amalgam and composite resin splint for posterior teeth

Document Type


Publication Date



A combined amalgam and composite resin splint was constructed for a 35-year-old man with pathologic tooth mobility. This type of stabilization was selected because of the poor prognosis, economic considerations, and poor alignment of the teeth. Amalgam restorations were inserted with strong contacts. Composite resin material was used to fill the channel cut through all amalgam restorations and reinforced with braided stainless steel wire. The poor alignment of the teeth would have caused other types of splints to fail. © 1973 The C. V. Mosby Company.
