Frequently Asked Questions
Does QuickSplint work for all patients?
QuickSplint is a conservative first step in the diagnosis and treatment of a majority of patients. However, there are patients for which QuickSplint is not appropriate. Read all instructions prior to prescribing.
Is QuickSplint FDA-approved?
QuickSplint is FDA approved, patented, and made in the USA.
Is the use of QuickSplint covered by insurance?
The use of QuickSplint is covered by insurance. For dental practices submitting dental insurance forms, QuickSplint uses are reimbursable and conform to dental codes D8210 or D9940 and do not preclude the use of dental code D7880 for a full arch appliance.
Is QuickSplint used on the upper or lower arch?
QuickSplint can be fit for either upper or lower arch; we recommend that you identify which arch has the more level tooth contact and make QuickSplint for the opposing arch. For post-surgery application, use QuickSplint on the opposing arch, and trim the VPS to be entirely tooth borne. We have some helpful videos for you in our Video Library.
How long can a patient wear QuickSplint?
It is recommended that QuickSplint be used for between 4 to 6 weeks, until the patient no longer needs it, or is transitioned to a long-term appliance. There are circumstances where a patient might be prescribed QuickSplint for a period of up to several months, such as a patient that is undergoing a complex treatment plan where it would be impractical to fit the patient for a long-term appliance between phases of treatment.
Is QuickSplint only worn at night? Or can QuickSplint be used during the day as well?
QuickSplint is to be used primarily when sleeping to prevent pain or damage to teeth (or restorations) caused by nighttime occlusal forces. The prescriber may suggest that QuickSplint be worn during the day as well for pain relief or to promote healing from surgical procedures, such a periodontal surgery, implant placement, and third molar extraction. QuickSplint is not recommended for continuous daytime wear of over two weeks.
What is QuickSplint made of?
QuickSplint has two components: A) a rigid biocompatible plastic shell that is filled with bite registration mate- rial to customize each appliance to supporting dictation and B) an insert area to be filled with suitable fast-set Poly Vinyl impression material (VPS). Learn more.
