Splint is one of the therapies to support the periodontal healing; aims to stabilize the teeth so the occlusal load can
be distributed equally to all other teeth. Periodontal splint can be used temporarily or permanently. The removable
frame partial denture can be functioned not only for replacing the missing teeth but also as permanent splint. Initial
therapy has been implemented to all cases on this report, consists of scaling, root planning, occlusal adjustment and
surgical therapy including curettage, flap operation, but apparently teeth mobility still existed. In order to support
the periodontal tissue health, the frame of removable partial denture is needed as splint. It can be concluded that
implementation of the removable partial denture with framework as splint to support the periodontal treatment
should be provided after the initial and surgical therapy.
