Artisan Digital Bruxguard (ADB)

Artisan Digital Bruxguard (ADB)

We’re excited about our newest night guard option!

Utilizing an innovative photopolymer material and advanced digital manufacturing technology, the ADB is a thermal-sensitive, monolithic appliance that offers easier seating appointments for you and improved comfort and protection for your patients.

Whether you submit analog or digital impressions, your records are uploaded into our CAD software to plan your case. Our technicians have complete control over the design of the appliance: architecture, material thickness, retention, and offset are some of the considerations in planning your case. Next, the design is evaluated. Factors such as occlusal contacts and excursive movements are checked, and the design is adjusted if necessary.

The final design is then manufactured digitally. This process improves the accuracy, quality, and consistency of our Bruxguards. These results could not be achieved with conventional manufacturing processes.
