Occlusal Splints, Dental

Definition : Occlusal splints (also known as intraoral orthoses) designed to fit tightly overlaying the occlusal surfaces of the upper or lower arch of the teeth (i.e., occlusal splints) during dental treatments. These splints usually consist of removable custom-designed soft or semi-rigid devices that are made of cured acrylic resins. They are created using a mold taken from the patient's dental arches and may be made from plastics (e.g., vinyl). Dental occlusal splints are often part of pre-restorative management of teeth and may have a role in protecting both teeth and restorations from excessive loads and further wear. The splints may be also used to provide relaxation to the masticatory muscles to help in mandibular repositioning treatments.
