A lower acrylic appliance designed to open the bite and reposition jaws to achieve an ideal TMJ relationship. The Gelb splint consists of a prosthetic lingual bar and posterior occlusal acrylic.
Lower Repositioning Splint
The upper repositioning splint holds the mandible forward to align TMJ function. This hard acrylic appliance has an anterior incline plane to guide the lower jaw to the comfortable position.
This anterior NTI splint is designed to deprogram occlusion by separating and holding posterior teeth apart. The anterior platform acts as a stop to keep teeth out of occlusion.
The Orthotic splint acts as a diagnostic tool to establish the pre-prosthetic bite and jaw relationship. This appliance can be removable or bonded and is designed with anatomical occlusion for function.
