Abstract: Different types of splints have been used to stabilize traumatized teeth in children.Some of these splints have compromised healing of the teeth and associated dental tissues.This article considers the ideal properties for a splint and describes a method of splinting traumatized teeth in children that meets most of the requirements of an ideal splint.

Clinical relevance: A method of splinting traumatized teeth using readily available dental materials is described.
