Thousands of our customers have told us the number one problem with splints is that they don’t fit properly. This results in tedious chairside adjustments and sometimes requires re-appointing and re-impressing the patient.
The difficulty of obtaining exact impressions and variances in stone expansion cause a fair percentage of ill-fitting appliances, and consequently poor functioning appliances.
With a combination of unique heat-softening and splint materials, and an innovative manufacturing process, the Rhea Occlusal Appliance is the solution to poor-fitting, uncomfortable splints.
The Rhea Occlusal Appliance is significantly different than existing appliances that use heat-softening materials like Talon®, CLEARsplint™, or Variflex™. Rather than simply softening to temporarily engage undercuts, the Rhea will actually re-form to subtle differences in the patient’s dentition, and compensate for slight inaccuracies in impressions and the deformities caused by plaster expansion.
