What you will get

Automatically raise the occlusal surface to the antagonist cusp tips

Getting correct contact is essential when building a good splint, nightguard, or protector. Splint Studio automatically makes a smooth surface that touches the antagonist cusp tips in the areas that you want. This means faster designs done correctly the first time.

Create slanted bite ramps in only a few clicks

Bite ramps are an important part of perfecting splints, and Splint Studio enables you to automatically create bite ramps exactly where and at the angle you want. The occlusal compass enables you to see which excursions generate which contacts.

Enforce minimum thicknesses

Patient safety and comfort are crucial when it comes to splints, night guards and protectors. To help you balance minimum material thickness and the slimmest design possible for patient comfort, Splint Studio notifies you whether the minimum thickness you have chosen is overserved all over the design. It points out discrepancies and fixes them automatically, if desired.
