Flat Plane Splint

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 and balanced to contact the opposing teeth evenly throughout the arch. The design can be used on the upper arch as well.

Balanced Occlusal Splint

The Balanced Occlusal Splint is ideally made with upper and lower models and a wax construction bite. While possible to make without an opposing model, the clinical time required to grind in and balance the splint may be significant. We would always prefer an opposing model to help reduce your Chair time.
