Are you tired of dealing with uncomfortable and rigid traditional nightguards? Do you want to offer your patients a more advanced and effective solution for managing bruxism, stress, and TMJ? Meet Nimbus Nightguards. The world of nightguards has undergone a revolution in recent years, thanks to advancements in technology, workflows, and materials. In this article, we will explore the latest innovations in nightguards and their potential impact on your dental practice and wellbeing of your patients.
The Importance of Nightguards
Nightguards have long been recognized as reliable treatment options for patients suffering from bruxism, stress, and TMJ. They provide a protective barrier that prevents teeth grinding and clenching during sleep, reducing the chances of tooth damage and alleviating associated symptoms like headaches. However, traditional nightguards have often been a source of discomfort and compliance issues for patients.
The Rise of Soft Splint Materials
One of the key breakthroughs in nightguard technology is the development of soft splint materials. Unlike their rigid predecessors, these new materials offer enhanced comfort as they soften to fit the patient’s mouth. This adaptability ensures a snug fit and makes wearing the nightguard a more comfortable experience. Patients no longer have to endure the bulkiness and discomfort associated with older models.
Types of Nightguards
Nightguard options have expanded beyond the traditional flat splint. Different types of nightguards are now available to cater to various patient needs. The flat splint, the most common option, offers full coverage for the teeth. The anterior guidance splint includes a ramp for lateral and protrusive guidance, while the anterior deprogrammer features a discluding block in the anterior region to relieve facial pain. The anterior repositioning splint is primarily used to bring the lower jaw forward and recapture a displaced disc. Understanding the different nightguard options can help you tailor your treatment approach to individual patient requirements.
The Rise of 3D Printing
The introduction of 3D printing technology has revolutionized the production of nightguards. Gone are the days of traditional impressions and lengthy turnaround times. With 3D printing, a patient can be scanned in minutes, and the digital file can be sent to the lab immediately, reducing both patient discomfort and production time. Intraoral scanners provide better quality impressions and allow for the custom design of nightguards. This technology yields more accurate results compared to traditional impressions, ensuring a precise fit and improved patient satisfaction.
The Nimbus Nightguard: The Latest Innovation
ODL has recently launched our 3D printed nightguard called the Nimbus Nightguard. As discussed in this podcast, this cutting-edge appliance is custom designed for each patient’s mouth using the latest 3D printing technology and materials. The bio-compatible resin used in the Nimbus Nightguard strikes a perfect balance between durability and gentleness on the teeth and gums.

Implementing nightguards within your dental practice not only helps patients but also presents an opportunity for doctors to improve their bottom line.
