Abstract

This article describes a method of in-office fabrication of an occlusal device for treatment of bruxism patients seeking a less costly alternative to laboratory-processed splints. This technique eliminates the need for mounted casts and the expense and delay associated with commercial laboratory involvement. It also minimizes patient and operator exposure to acrylic resin monomer and high temperatures associated with its polymerization reaction by use of a light-polymerized blue urethane dimethacrylate resin.
