Repositioning splints, and then what? Treatment protocol for the stabilization of a therapeutic mandibular position
In the course of CMD treatment, the position of the mandible is frequently adjusted and then stabilized with occlusal splints. To transfer this therapeutic position of the mandible from the splint to the dental arches, and thus to a reconstruction that will be fabricated, is a technically difficult and demanding procedure. The treatment protocol presented in this article can be implemented in any dental practice without much equipment or many instruments, and ensures a reliable transfer of the therapeutic position of the mandible.
