A Bite Repositionign Appliance (BRA) is Worn for a Short Period and Helps to Reduce Possible Bite Changes
After wearing a Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD) over a period of time, there is an inevitable undesirable bite change with the potential of a posterior open bite developing, as the mandible slowly migrates forward. To mitigate this problem, it is advisable to wear a Bite Repositioning Appliance (BRA) immediately after removing the MAD. The patient should bite on this until he feels a normal, solid contact on the back teeth. The length of time needed for this varies from patient to patient. This could be done while showering or commuting.

The Fit is Similar to a Sports Guard
These Bite Repositioning Appliances are made from a thin thermoform material that fits over the lower teeth, similar to a sports mouth guard. The posterior occlusion of the maxillary opposing dentition is imprinted into the appliance and gently guides and holds the mandible in place as the muscles reposition the mandible into the normal occlusion.

8 Colours Available
Bite Repositioning Appliances from Klausz Dental Laboratories are available in a variety of colours and are designed to be as individual as your patients that wear them.

We are proud to be able to offer our clients the latest advances when it comes to splint therapy. Whatever your requirements, we have the splint for you!.

The Maxillary Anterior Deprogrammer was developed to prevent posterior tooth contact for those heavy bruxers and clenchers.

It is more than a standard bite splint, as it protects the teeth by calming the temporalis muscles thus preventing grinding. By capturing the hamular notches in the upper impression, we are able to mount the maxillary cast on an AccuLiner Articulator. This mounting will relate the upper model to the HIP Plane (Hamular Notches-Incisive Papilla), which correlates the upper arch to the horizontal plane at the base of the skull allowing for straight transitional movement. The base material of the appliance is constructed with a uniquely formulated polymer. Formed using Pressure Molded Technology, PMT, the base material adapts to the teeth with greater accuracy than through vacuforming alone. Worn during the night, its unique combination of a tough impact resistant anterior occlusal table surface with its more pliable tooth and tissue side, offers your patients lasting durability and custom comfort.

ORTHOTICS - Daysplints

DaySplints or Mandibular Positioning Appliances are indicated for patients with chronic disc displacements or skeletal and muscular asymmetry. They function as a positioning device to correct vertical dimension, rotation, cant, and protrusive changes. Lingual anatomical ridges guide the patient into a new occlusal position and protect contra lateral joints in working movement. These appliances can be custom fabricated using Pressure Molded Technology, PMT or Thermoplastic Bases for greater comfort.

ORTHOTICS - Aqualizer

We are one of the exclusive distributors for Aqualizer Appliances in Canada. The Aqualizer splint is an ideal aid in the taking of an open vertical bite registration for bruxism appliances and T.M.J. splints. Using the laws of fluid dynamics, this hydrostatic splint allows the muscles of mastication to relax. By using the Aqualizer Muscle Directed Bite Registration Technique (click here to see the technique), you can provide the lab with a perfect bite, with the correct amount of vertical opening for flat plane splints, that require minimal occlusal adjustments.

We can provide you with Low, Medium, and High Volume Aqualizers in any volume assortment and quantity you desire.
