Splints, Bites, and Guards, Oh My!

Today’s splints are devices that can now be manufactured by additive manufacturing (3D printing). There is quite a bit of discussion about splints, biteguards, nightguards, occlusal splints and the dental laboratory’s involvement in the manufacturing process. What are the legal obligations for the dental lab if they manufacture a guard with the Verisplint material from Whip Mix or another manufacturer? We hope this webinar will aid dental laboratories in navigating FDA waters for Regulatory Compliance.
