Abstract

The present study examines the possibilities of applying modern technologies in the field of dental science and specifically in the treatment of bruxism. Based on an optimized methodology, a prototype, and digital and real dental splint models have been developed using biocompatible material and specialized equipment including a 3D scanner and a 3D printer. The details of the production of the models are precisely designed, taking into consideration the medical and technical requirements.
