How to Send
- Send a digital scan or a physical model of
1. Full Upper Arch
2. Full Lower Arch
3. Bite Registration at desired splint thickness
- Allow 5 IN-LAB production days
Upon delivery, please try the bite splint in the patient’s mouth before using thermal adjustments. This will help determine how much adjusting is needed. To adjust, run the bite splint under warm water or place it in a cup of hot water, depending how much of an adjustment is needed. No more than 1 minute in water is needed to loosen the fit. After, insert the bite splint into the patient’s mouth and instruct the patient to bite down with moderate pressure. After 15-20 seconds, remove the bite splint and run it under cold water to secure the fit and retention.
- With Apex DentalGUARD being thermal adjusting, this allows the patient to self-adjust the bite splint after delivery in the comfort of their own home if needed.
