Splints and Sleep

Occlusal Splints

Also known as occlusal guards, night guards, or bite plates, splints play an important role in a range of dental treatments. These treatments include mitigating the effects of bruxism, safeguarding the patient’s dentition, and ensuring the longevity of new dental restorations or post-orthodontic work. By preventing nighttime teeth grinding and clenching, they offer a protective barrier against dental wear and tear.

Talon Occlusal Splint Benefits

Oceanic Dental Lab chooses to use only first-grade materials and digital equipment to create a custom dental splint that will match the patient’s needs perfectly. With this in mind, we searched for the best type of occlusal splint fabrication material and discovered Talon, that comes with a multitude of benefits:

  • Ease of insertion and removal
  • Optimum retention
  • Greatest comfort with the absence of tissue pressure
  • Minimal chairside adjustment necessary
  • Bonded hard acrylic for the best bruxing durability
  • Has memory and does not warp

Occlusal Splints made from Quality Material

For maximum dental protection, it is essential that patients can comfortably wear the guard for extended periods of time. When fabricating an occlusal splint, premium dental materials are crucial in the custom design to ensure an impeccable fit within the patient’s mouth. Such precision in design not only guarantees superior comfort but is also important that the splint protects the teeth from grinding damage.

Constructed from a soft thermoplastic, Talon occlusal splints retain their shape and flexibility over a long period of time. Its design simplicity ensures patient comfort; pliant thermoplastic interior that is bonded to an acrylic exterior, creating a durable but malleable design.
