Exocad – Bite Splint Module for Nightguard

Rotsaert Dental Laboratory is proud to announce that we use Exocad’s Bite Splint Module to digitally design a nightguard.

With Exocad’s Bite Splint Module, therapeutic night guards can be designed quickly and in high quality. We recommend using a combination of both Bite Splint Module and Virtual Articulator for optimal patient-specific results. Output files can be either milled or printed.
