The following workflow applies to patients receiving a night guard.
The outline below is a step-by-step appointment guide for our night guard workflow. Please be sure to review our Night Guard Scanning Best Practices article before proceeding.
Choose the "Splints, Guards & TMJ" option when you go to set up your case.
Within "Splints, Guards & TMJ" select "Night Guard."
You will then be prompted to select the arch for which the night guard will be made.
Follow the scanning sequence: Lower Arch > Upper Arch > Bite > Submit Order
TIP: Be sure to capture every aspect of the arch receiving the night guard. An accurate scan allows us to fabricate an accurate night guard. The distal surfaces of the posterior-most teeth must be completely captured for the arch receiving the night guard.
