Retention foils or retention splits are foils placed over teeth surface.

In order to make a retention foil it is necessary to take teeth impression upon the removal of braces. A plaster model is made over which a soft foil is placed, which  adopts tooth shape. Splint is processed and given to patient for usage.

After the removal of fixed braces, splints are worn initially as frequent as possible. Few months later, it is recommended to a patient to wear splints at night while sleeping. They are some kind of “invisible” braces. Foils do not cause any unpleasant sensation and they are translucent, which is their biggest advantage.[/top_dentist_page_heading][vc_row_inner gap=”10″][vc_column_inner][vc_single_image image=”1001″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_custom_heading text=”Night guard – teeth grinding” font_container=”tag:h3|font_size:36px|text_align:left|line_height:1.25″ use_theme_fonts=”yes” el_class=”color-primary” css=”.vc_custom_1537444561917{margin-bottom: 20px !important;}”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1537444575910{margin-bottom: 35px !important;}”]If you have a problem such as teeth grinding, your dentis will recommend wearing a splint at night. This unpleasant event is very harmful to a person who is experiencing it. Teeth grinding most commonly occurs while sleeping or chewing.

During contact between upper and lower teeth there is increased friction and growth of forces that are detrimental to enamel and further teeth abrasion, as well as to supporting teeth tissue. Process of making split is very simple for the patient. An impression is taken out of which a plaster model is made; splint is made on this plaster.

Splints can be made of foils that come in different thickness. Splints are intended for wearing at night.
