Treatment & Care
Upper splint position is maintained by an acrylic flange, which rests lingual to the lower anterior, and indexes the lower buccal cusps. Flange holds its position even at night when the jaw relaxes. Lower splint maintains position with deep buccal, lingual, and incisal indexing of the upper cusp tips.
Patients should wear at night and clean daily with toothpaste to prevent the buildup of plaque and odor. Avoid Efferdent and other effervescent solutions, as it may erode components on the appliance. It is recommended to use products like Dent Soak or Retainer Splash.
