Flat Plane Splint - Asymptomatic
This month we’re releasing the animation: "Flat plane splint – asymptomatic".
Dr Alain Aubé has described his use of flat plane splints in past webinars, but he’ll remind us in November's webinar of the reasons behind the design of these splints.
This animation shows how the plane of the splint allows the jaw to settle back into its fully seated position, with the other teeth only making contact when the jaw is fully seated. The flat plane takes advantage of the geometry of the eminence and lower anterior teeth to provide anterior guidance.
Next month will be the symptomatic version – where the symptoms are whether there is jaw pain or not.
The info topics provided with the animations will explain the details.
Thanks to Dr. Aubé, President, Canadian Occlusion Institute, for his guidance in creating this animation.
Look for this animation in Update 78 on Windows, Update 44 on the iPad.
