What is a fixed Orthotic?

Once the splint therapy has been effective and the bite and jaws are stabilizing it will be possible to complete a diagnostic wax-up of a proposed treatment position at this time. This is usually done on the lower jaw and the existing restorations are abraded and a plastic overlay is applied on top of them at the new bite relationship for wear as a TRIAL BITE:  Some refinement is required and once a stable and comfortable and repeatable position is present, we can undertake the rehabilitation needed.
