- Eliminates interfacial staining and the corresponding aesthetic and hygienic compromises.
- Increased fracture resistance.
- Form modifications during fitting or external repairs at recalls are quick and easy.
The unique form offers a variety of possibilities to individualize the splint.
- Retention can be achieved with the central incisors, the lateral incisors, or all four.
- Force distribution to the canines if desired, for example with Class II Division 1 occlusion.
- Assures axial loading of mandibular teeth with minimal adjustment.
- Predictable avoidance of mandibular canine contact, even with extreme lateral movements.
- Helps avoid invasive adjustment of irregular mandibular incisal edges.
- Frequently simpler than a maxillary splint to fit and adjust.
The mandibular FOS also can serve as a classic maxillary deprogrammer. Simply turn it upside down and place it in the maxillary arch.
The indications for a simple midline point stop splint:
- Treatment of acute TMJ pain with limited opening
- Diagnostic placement to achieve a physiologic bite registration.
- Are teeth rotated or tipped and clinical relining unpredictable?
- Is minimizing your clinical chair time your first priority?
- Do you prefer to have the support of an expert laboratory?
After mounting the models, the laboratory will fit the splint.
It will be finished and polished, ready for the final check of the occlusion in your clinic.
The laboratory box
The laboratory box is preaddressed and the postal fees are paid. Make silicone impressions, complete the simple order form and bring it to the next post office. You will receive the finished splint within a week.
