"We Build Advanced Occlusal Concepts
Into Everything We Do!"

We've Grown into an O.I.C.S. Laboratory

At Klausz Dental Laboratories, we are committed to providing our clients with a full range of services, restorations, and appliances to meet all aspects of clinical dentistry. To meet your expectations we have grown into an Occlusal-Implant-Cosmetic-Sleep (O.I.C.S.) Laboratory.

With almost 50 years of experience in the dental technology field, we build advanced occlusal concepts into every restoration and appliance we custom fabricate. With a greater understanding of how teeth, muscles and joints work together, we can create restorations that not only look lifelike and aesthetic, but can last longer and function better. Allow us to apply the knowledge we’ve accumulated into your next restoration or appliance.

We hope our e-Newsletters prove to be informative, educational, and beneficial. Each issue will cover different topics on materials, techniques, services and educational opportunities.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with specific questions. We look forward to working with you.


Splint Therapy Just Got A Lot More Fun!!!

Coloured Thermoplastics

Our Thermoplastics are now available in a variety of colours, designed to be as individual as your patients are.

We are proud to be able to offer our clients a variety of options when it comes to splint therapy, and now all our Thermoplastic Splints can be tinted in 8 additional colours to complement our original crystal clear shade.

Clear Pink Blue Orange Yellow  Violet Green Black Red

The Thermoplastic Splint - for Patient Comfort
Made from a unique thermo-plastic material and was developed for greater patient comfort.  The advanced properties of this material allow it to flex when softened under warm water and thus conforms to the contours of the patient’s teeth when inserted.

The Hard Occlusal/Thermoplastic Interior Splint - for Durability & Comfort
By far the most popular splint and was developed for those heavy bruxers and clenchers.  Its unique combination of a tough impact resistant occlusal surface with its pliable tooth and tissue side offers your patients the best of both worlds: lasting durability and custom comfort.

The Thermoplastic Anterior Deprogrammer - Prevents Posterior Contact - Calms Muscles
Designed to prevent posterior tooth contact and is more than a standard bite splint. It protects the teeth by calming the temporalis muscles, and in many cases can reduce or eliminate muscle pain and inflammation associated with bruxing and clenching.

Whatever your requirements, we have the splint for you! Now In Colour!

Looking for ways to provide greater benefits to our clients, and their patients,
is just another way we’re working harder and smarter for your practice!


Using the laws of fluid dynamics, a prosthodontist at the University of Illinois came up with this simple device consisting of two water pads, connected by an equalizing channel. When placed in the mouth, the Aqualizer allows both left and right sides of posterior segments to equilibrate with each other, allowing the muscles of mastication to relax. Its floating action makes it an excellent tool to simplify TMD diagnoses and treatment planning. It can act as a temporary pain control splint, as well as guide your equilibration technique for either teeth or splints.

Capture the Open Bite for Splints and Nightguards
A Simple Step-by-Step Procedure

Step 1: – Insert an Aqualizer™ into the mouth allowing the muscles to bring the mandible to its natural, most comfortable 3-D position, (great in combination with T.E.N.S. and jaw tracking). Add base plate wax under pads for small increases of less than 2mm.  If there is no spasm in the muscles, step two can be performed 10 minutes after insertion.
Step 2: – Instruct the patient to bite down naturally with the Aqualizer™ still in place, while injecting silicone from cuspid to cuspid.
Step 3: – Remove the Aqualizer™ with the anterior bite still in place. Inject registration material between the occlusal surfaces of the left and right posterior teeth. Instruct the patient to close carefully into the previously established anterior bite. Allow the silicone to set.
Step 4: – Remove the one-piece full arch bite registration from the mouth.
Step 5: – Assemble the patient's dental casts accurately into the bite registration. Send this assembly to the lab, or mount the combined casts/registration assembly on your articulator.
Step 6: – Remove the silicone bite registration. The Aqualizer™ allows you to preview, then accurately reproduce for splints, the most functional cranio-mandibular occlusal relationships.

For your additional convenience, 
our laboratory now stocks 
Low, Medium, & High Volume, Ultra Aqualizer
