Bite Splints

Comfort H/S™ Bite Splint

Bite splints can make a world of difference for bruxing and grinding patients; alleviating pain and preventing further destruction of existing healthy dentition. The Comfort H/S™ Bite Splint is the most widely prescribed bite splint due to its comfort and fit. Two layers make up the Comfort H/S Bite Splint: a 1 mm soft, comfortable polyurethane inner layer and a 3 mm hard, durable co-polyester outer layer. The soft internal surface rests comfortably against the teeth and gums, while the hard occlusal surface provides durability and bonds with acrylic for easy modification.

  • PREP REQUIREMENTS

    Start with an accurate, void-free impression of both arches. Ensure no tears or bubbles are present in impression material for precision fit. Instruct patient to close into centric relation to verify midline position and bite. Then, place two cotton rolls behind the cuspids and instruct patient to close; with patient in open bite, inject bite registration into the posterior openings of both quadrants. In addition, inject bite registration into anterior opening to capture a complete open construction bite.

  • INSTRUCTIONS

    Seat splint and evaluate fit and retention. If adjustments are necessary, adjust with carbide bur or polish if needed. Once seated in the patient’s mouth, check bite with marking tape to identify premature occlusion; adjust and polish as needed.
