splintings
Explanation:
Hello, Morgan, I think it is a typo and the right word was splintaggio: E' indispensabile al termine della terapia bloccare (splintaggio) gli elementi dentali per mantenere il risultato ottenuto consolidando gli elementi stessi.
http://www.dentecariato.it/index.htm?page=ortodonzia/terapia...

Splint: connection of two or more teeth so they function as a stronger single structure.
Splinting is a process where the teeth are joined together to increase their strength. Front teeth are the common areas that need splinting. If two or more teeth become loose they can be joined to the surrounding, stable teeth. This procedure allows eating to become more comfortable again.

I've also found the term "splintage" with the same significance but the authors are not English mother tongue, so I suggest splinting (lots of references on the Web).

Good luck!
