Even though the lab costs for nightguards are not excessive, I would like to save on this and make my nightguards in the office. I would like to train my assistants to do this. In the past we used these suck-down nightguards where we heat-softened a sheet of plastic and adapted it to the models. These are okay but do not last very long. Usually the patient wears through in the molar area. I’m looking for a better alternative. I’ve seen that Caulk Dentsply is advertising their iNterra brand nightguard kit for in office fabrication. They look like lab quality nightguards, but I can’t seem to find much information on this product . Anybody using this system? What has been your experience?
