Bite Splints, Guards & Trays

Flat Plane Splint

Fabricated over the maxillary or mandibular arch with occlusal surface ground “flat” for even contact with the opposing arch.

Options include;

  • Clasps for added retention.
  • Ramps for guidance
  • Soft liner for additional comfort


The NTI-Tss (“Nociceptive Trigeminal Inhibition – Tension Suppression System”) device is an anterior bite stop that is indicated for the prevention and treatment of bruxism, temporomandibular disorders (TMDs), tension-type headaches, and migraine. We custom fabricate this appliance on the upper or lower arch and with or without a soft liner. Typical coverage is incisor to incisor, but can be made cuspid to cuspid or full arch.

Gelb (posterior bite plane)

Mandibular repositioning splint uses posterior occlusal pads connected by a heavy lingual bar The occlusal acrylic is ground flat to the maxillary for even contact. Clasps may be added to aid retention

Anterior Bite Plate

This appliance is often used to disclude the posterior, correct a deep bite, or add guidance to correct mandibular positioning. Anterior bite planes may be made fixed or removable or incorporated into most other appliances


(Thermo-formed overlay)

This is a thermoformed shell to protect from bruxing. There is no occlusal treatment done to this tray, though acrylic will bond to any of the hard types of overlay materials so guidance can be added.
