The Anterior Repositioning Splint, also known as the Pull Forward Splint Relation is used to recapture anteriorly displaced discs. This full coverage maxillary splint is used for night wear. These splints are usually fabricated with a wax bite bringing the mandible into a protrusive position.
The upper splint position is maintained by means on an acrylic flange with rests lingual to the lower anteriors and indexes the lower buccal cusps. The flange maintains position even at night when the jaw relaxes. The lower splint maintains position with deep buccal, lingual and incisal indexing of the upper cusp tips.
Lab Requirements: Send upper and lower stone models and protrusive bite.
