Also Known as Occlusal Guards
Occlusal splints are also known as occlusal guards, night guards or bite plates. They are used for a number of dental treatments, such as bruxism, protecting a patient’s dentition or preserving a new dental restoration or after orthodontic work. They also protect the teeth by preventing the patient from wearing their teeth down during sleep through grinding and clenching.
It’s important that the patient can wear the guard for prolonged periods comfortably. IThus, only high quality materials have to be used to custom-design an occlusal splint and to ensure it fits the patient’s mouth perfectly. Not only will it provide the patient with the highest degree of comfort, but only then will it effectively serve its purpose.
At Oceanic Dental Lab we specialise in the manufacture of Talon Occlusal Splints. We have chosen this particular type of splint as out preferred because we believe it’s the best on the market for many reasons. The Talon Occlusal Splint is made from soft thermoplastic, creating a flexible fit for patient comfort. Talon occlusal splints are different from other occlusal splints as the thermoplastic will retain its shape and flexibility for years. We like to say that this particular occlusal splint design is the perfect combination of a hard and soft splint that eliminates the inherent disadvantages of both types.
From our experience and experience of the dental practices we partner with, Talon dental occlusal splint minimises the chair time since it is easy to design in such a way that it provides comfort for the patient. Namely, the pliable thermoplastic interior can be easily bonded to a hard acrylic shell which simplifies the adjustment of the occlusal splint device. Talon material offers comfort at the patient’s body temperature and retention without putting pressure on the teeth, causing soreness. Talon dental occlusal splint will maintain its flexibility long-term, allowing the patient to use it comfortably for years.
