Product Details

Anticipated Release:  September 2024

Gordon J. Christensen, DDS, MSD, PhD; Karen Preston, MAEd, RDH, FHEA; & Ric Schwarting, BS

Occlusal principles and techniques have become much more essential because of changes in restorative materials, occlusal concepts, orthodontic procedures, and increased occlusal malfunction. Occlusal splints are mandatory for the prevention and treatment of occlusal maladies. Splints can be tolerated very well if fabricated correctly, but they need meticulous and routine adjustments for optimum service. In this video, learn various types of occlusal splints, when each type is indicated, their ideal characteristics, and how to adjust them for best patient acceptance, comfort, and long service. Watch Gordon and our clinical team demonstrate the entire procedure, from seating, adjusting, and educating the patient to follow-up adjustment appointments. Most occlusal splint procedures can be delegated to competent staff members such as your hygienist, dental assistant, or lab technician.
