Among the many practical uses of the QuickSplint, is as an aid to minimize complications associated with implant treatment. QuickSplint is a temporary bite plane designed for interim care. The immediate appliance serves as a healing and protective aid that can be worn for several weeks under the dentist’s direction, until the patient no longer needs it, or until the patient is transitioned into a long-term appliance.
Developed for overnight wear, QuickSplint functions as an anterior bite plane and provides immediate posterior tooth disclusion. QuickSplint fits from cuspid to cuspid and can be quickly and easily fabricated for upper or lower jaw. A chair side champion, QuickSplint takes less than five minutes to fabricate.
Posterior implant site protector
The QuickSplint appliance allows clinicians to provide patients with an immediate bite appliance the day of implant surgery. QuickSplint inhibits parafunctional clenching and minimizes complications during the osseointegration phase. Immediate posterior disclusion is achieved, protecting the surgical site from post-procedure trauma associated with occlusal force.
Anterior implant site stabilizer
The mighty bite plane can also be used as an aid to stabilize and protect an anterior implant site. QuickSplint is an immediate substitute for an essix device. Try this practical technique at your practice.
