What Dental Professionals are Saying About QuickSplint®
"I’m using the QuickSplint for cosmetic cases. This includes everything from recording open bite centric occlusion records to provisional protection and final prosthesis protection. Used as a diagnostic tool, as a first line of treatment or as a step in treatment, QuickSplint is a valuable treatment tool."John Weston, DDS
Accredited Fellow, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry
"Destruction of the dentition from grinding and clenching is a significant problem for patients and dentists alike. Often the amount of damage will necessitate complex restorative dentistry to restore the teeth. For early recognition and treatment of potential parafunction, I have found QuickSplint to be a convenient and easy anterior bite plane design that can be applied on a trial basis to patients almost universally."Lee Ann Brady, DMD
"QuickSplint has filled a small hole in my toolbox by enabling me to quickly fabricate devices to help patients with orofacial pain while the lab makes their custom splints — and I’ve found a few other uses for it too. QuickSplint absolutely has a place in my practice. Hard-hit double in the power alley for Orofacial Therapeutics!"
Fellow Academy of General Dentistry
"I teach the use of, and use the anterior bite plane appliance. It is far and away the most prescribed appliance I use. For patients who present with muscle pain, QuickSplint is an excellent therapeutic and diagnostic aid."Gary DeWood, DDS, MS
"QuickSplint is a great provisional sectional orthotic that can be utilized for a number of reasons. We us it for differential diagnosis in an orofacial pain patient, as an anterior deprogrammer, to protect provisional restorations and as a provisional orthotic while long term appliances are being made. It is quick, easy and economical to use."
Director of Core Curriculum and Lead Faculty Dawson Academy
"QuickSplint is great as a temporary appliance prior to getting an orthotic fabricated, as a deprogrammer, as a night guard to go over Invisalign trays, as a temporary night guard over your veneer temps or reconstruction cases, and as a temporary appliance over your newly seated cosmetic or reconstruction cases."

"I am having the patient wear QuickSplint for a week and then I do a post op and assess the QuickSplint -- how it's holding up, where it's marking, how is the patient doing with it, any comfort/discomfort. Depending on those findings, I may have them wear it longer while I fabricate a longer term occlusal guard."Robert Gregg, DDS
"We have found the use of QuickSplint to be beneficial as part of the LANAP Protocol and now teach its use in our laser instruction."
"Muscular and endodontic pain happen in conjunction many times. Myogenic pain is very often confused as odontogenic pain. Endodontic treatment is unnecessarily completed and the patient’s pain remains. I use the QuickSplint as a non-invasive, inexpensive test to rule out muscular pain if I am uncertain about an endodontic origin. As a patient, I would much prefer a QuickSplint as a test instead of endodontic therapy as a test."
Rahim Karmali, DDS
Member International Academy of Endodontics
"QuickSplint is an excellent option for temporary treatment of acute myofascial pain, prevention of bruxism- related endodontic post-operative pain, and for increasing the sensitivity and specificity of endodontic testing when the diagnosis is clouded by bruxism-related symptoms."
Michael Trudeau, DDS
Member International Academy of Endodontics
“QuickSplint helps me provide my patients with a TMD appliance that can be inserted on the same day of my evaluation. This provides immediate protection of the temporomandibular muscles, joints, and teeth until a long-term splint can be placed. It is vitally important to prevent chronic TMD pain at the earliest onset of the condition. I use QuickSplint as a simple, effective solution."

"Being able to fit a patient with a temporary splint immediately after an examination is most satisfactory for me. Previous to QuickSplint, we would make temporary appliances. This entailed staff time and materials. Now with QuickSplint, in less than two minutes we have a device ready to use and our patients benefit greatly."
