    Author(s): R Saravanan and Jaiganesh Ramamurthy*

    Introduction:Splinting of the mobile teeth is a critical part of periodontal management to improve the prognosis and longevity of stable results of periodontally compromised teeth with increased mobility. Different types of splints are used in the dental field based on their mechanical and physical properties. Splinting device which joins two or more teeth in order to provide support and to reduce mobility. Tooth brush simulation which provides a normal cycle of toothbrush. In which toothbrush simulation provides the brushing in different types of fibre splints with different types of toothpaste to identify the flexibility of Interlig fibre splints and Techno fibre splint along with Colgate toothpaste and Dabur red paste. Materials and methods: 20 samples of teeth were subjected for the study. In which 16 samples on mandibular central incisors were tested and analysed and other 2 samp.. Read More»
