By the changed mounting device within the molar area of the lower jaw and in the canines area of the upper jaw the protrusion of the lower jaw is permanently secured during open mouth posture.
The ISTclassic® NEU set consists of 1 pair of guiding rods and 4 fixing screws, LAMItec-foils (Ø 125 mm), monomer, polymer, a safety key, a bite fork for controlled protrusive adjustment of the mandible and a storage box for the patient.
During this special laminating procedure two polycarbonate foils are connected with a soft intermediate layer. The holding devices for splints and attachments for protrusion splints are in-laminated between two foils. Advantages of the laminating procedure: A reinforcement only of the 1.3 - 2 mm laminated rails with autopolymers are redundant and the resistive torque and the bending strength increase and make the splints almost shatterproof.
A planar discoloration, as it arises with conventional hard or soft splints, is avoided: The colour-sensitive layer is inside with this procedure. The accumulation of plaque is minimized by the smooth, highly transparent surfaces of the deep-drawn splints.
