Title (EN) METHODS AND KITS FOR MAKING FLEXIBLE DENTAL GUARDS
(FR) PROCÉDÉS ET KITS POUR LA FABRICATION DE PROTECTIONS DENTAIRES FLEXIBLES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Dental guards (36), particularly night guards, used by patients to protect their teeth against the effects of grinding and bruxism are provided. Methods and kits for making such dental guards are also included. A light-curable polymerizable arch material is used to fabricate the dental guard. Preferably, the material contains polymerizable acrylic compounds, color-changing cure indicator, and particulate filler. The material is molded to conform to the shape of a dental arch of a patient and light-cured to form the dental guard.
(FR)L'invention concerne des protections dentaires (36), notamment des protections de nuit, utilisées par les patients pour protéger leurs dents contre les effets du grincement des dents et du bruxisme. L'invention concerne également des procédés et des kits pour la fabrication de telles protections dentaires. Un matériau arqué polymérisable et durcissable à la lumière est utilisé pour fabriquer la protection dentaire. Le matériau contient de préférence des composés acryliques polymérisables, un indicateur de durcissement à changement de couleur et des charges particulaires. Le matériau est moulé pour s'adapter à la forme de l'arcade dentaire d'un patient et durci à la lumière pour former la protection dentaire.
