The Superior Repositioning Splint (SRS) incorporates a full occlusal scheme with incisal guidance and balanced lateral movements. The SRS must be fabricated with articulated models to ensure the thickness of the inter-occlusal acrylic is accurate. Ball clasps may be added for retention. [ View More Info ]
The Mandibular Orthopedic Repositioning Appliance (MORA or Gelb) is a lower splint used to reposition the mandible in a forward position while allowing normalization of the condyle, disc, and fossa relationships. The MORA is made on the lower arch with a heavy lingual bar connecting the two acrylic halves. [ View More Info ]
The Anterior Repositioning Splint is used to reposition the mandible in a forward position while allowing the disc assembly to resume a more normal position in relation to the condyle and fossa. The ARS can be used as an upper or lower appliance. The upper appliance is generally worn at night, as speaking may be difficult due to the anterior ramp. [ View More Info ]
Flat Occlusal Splints
The Flat Plane Splint may be used as a diagnostic or treatment. Since it does not index or attempt to lock in the opposing arch, the Flat Plane Splint is well-suited to cases requiring a free mandibular position. Designed for the upper or lower arch, it is fabricated with flat occlusal acrylic.
The Damon Splint is generally used as a post-treatment appliance and is designed to help maintain the results achieved with arch development, Class 2 correction and fixed appliances. The Damon Splint is typically fabricated from dual-laminate pressure-formed material.
Dual Laminate Splints, made from a dual-laminate material, has a hard outer shell and soft inner liner constructed for the upper and lower arch. The dual-laminate material can make the appliance easier to seat. The dual laminate material can also be incorporated into other designs. [ View More Info ]
The construction bite for our Splints can be made using a highly advanced and technical digital software. With this software, we can simulate the position of the arches in an articulated position so the hinge axis will be consistent and the vertical opening built into the splint.
Variflex is a unique acrylic with dual-hardness properties. At room temperature, Variflex is a hard material similar to standard acrylic. In the mouth, Variflex softens slightly to facilitate seating.
Coming Soon! We are working with digital software technology and a new 3-D printed Splint material. We expect to bring this to market in 2018 - check back!
