Bite Splints

Bite Splints offer you and your patients cost-effective bruxism protection as well as protection for fixed restorative work. Bite Splints are thermoformed using sudden vacuum for precise adaptation and can be fabricated for either arch. Additionally, Bite Splints are easily adjusted and polished and may be added to with self-cure orthodontic if required. They are available in three design alternatives:

H/S Bite Splint

The H/S Bite Splint is our standard splint and is the same as the Hard Bite Splint except the inner surface has a 1 mm layer of soft material for increased comfort and ease of delivery. Occlusal thickness of the finished splint is approximately 2½ mm. This splint is not available with canine guidance or posterior disclusion.

Soft Bite Splint

The Soft Bite Splint is an upper or lower soft, clear splint available with or without imprint of opposing teeth. Occlusal thickness of the finished splint is approximately 3 mm. Thinner splints are available upon request.

Hard Bite Splint

The Hard Bite Splint is a hard, clear, full coverage splint with even, flat contacts with opposing teeth. Occlusal thickness of the finished splint is approximately 2½ mm. This splint is not available with canine guidance or posterior disclusion.
