Occlusal Appliance Replaces Poor-Fitting, Uncomfortable Splints

Dentistry Today


The Rhea Occlusal Appliance from Great Lakes Orthodontics is the solution to poor-fitting, uncomfortable splints. Significantly different from existing appliances that use heat-softening materials, it re-forms to subtle differences in the patient’s dentition and compensates for slight variances in impressions and for deformities caused by plaster expansion.

The Rhea is custom-formed to original models. As a result, chairside seating is only necessary to fine-tune fit and compensate for minor variations. It is available as a Wearguard, Flat Occlusal Plane, or Full Contact with Anterior Guidance.
