NIGHT GUARD

Removable prostheses

We propose three types of materials.

  • Thermoflex : The heat induced flexibility soften Thermoflex plate. It covers the teeth’s buccal below the longest contour line procuring retention and stability.
  • Ivocap rigid : The pressure injected translucent acrylic rigid Ivocap plate. Because of its rigidity, the buccal finish is a little more abrasive than the Thermoflex. Single or ball hooks are added to provide good retention. For the rigid bottom-plates, we add a metal reinforcement to the lingual for maximum strength in areas less resistant to long-term use.
  • Impact: Flexible inside and hard outside, is recommended following complet rehabilitation case or for hypersensitive teeth. This nightguard provides great comfort and its hard outerside allow teeth to glide in an optimal way. However, because of its thickness, which is slightly thicker than Thermoflex and rigid Ivocap plate, Impact is not ideal for limited opening case.

We recommend that you should always take an open-mouth bite-mark of the night guard’s thickness and in centric relation. This will prevent major adjustments and will save time. Various colourings are available to offer patients exceptional products.

According to certain estimates, the pressure caused by jaw-clenching can attain 250 pounds during one night and shocks can occur up to ten times per hour.
