TALON SPLINT FEATURES
Talon splint has become extremely popular among dental professionals and patients due to its unique qualities. It represents a perfect combination of the benefits that come with both a hard splint and soft splint, in that way eliminating their disadvantages. As a result, Talon splint is much easier to create and reduces the time it takes to modify it to fit the patient’s mouth.
A part of the Talon splint that comes in contact with teeth is made of soft, thermoplastic polymer to provide comfort. The material we use here at Pindan Dental Laboratory is carefully chosen to match the body temperature and not add any discomforting pressure. The pliable thermoplastic interior bonds to a shell made of hard acrylic to enable normal occlusal adjustments.
To fit it in the mouth, the guard is first placed in warm water so that it would slightly soften and easily modify while still keeping its high retention properties. With Talon splint, there are no additional internal adjustments due to the custom-fit experience this device provides.
