Occlusal Guards and Splints

Occlusal Guards and Splints

Occlusal guards and splints serve a number of important purposes, from protecting teeth from the damage of grinding and clenching the teeth to maintaining the stability of restorative and orthodontic work in the mouth. They must be very accurate in order to be effective, making them a perfect fit for 3D printing. Occlusal guards and splints can now be custom made in the time the patient is still in the office. The inexpensive appliances fit over your patients’ teeth and can be used for TMJ, bruxism, and more.

Materials

E-Guard

EnvisionTEC’s E-Guard 3D printing material is a biocompatible, crystal-clear material for the production of accurate orthodontic splints and retainers. The results produced by combining E-Guard with EnvisionTEC technology are superior to traditional methods of manufacturing bite guards and night guards. It is a clear material, allowing for maximum visibility. High resolution 3D printing allows for precise fit. Finally, the cost of high quality splints and retainers can be dramatically lower when produced using E-Guard on an EnvisionTEC 3D printer in comparison to previous machining methods, making EnvisionTEC the clear choice for any digital dental or orthodontic laboratory or practice.

KeySplint Soft for EnvisionTEC 

KeySplint Soft for EnvisionTEC is a a 3D printing resin ideal for printing splints and night guards.
