Designed by Dr. Dwight Damon, the Damon Splint is generally utilized to reinforce Class II and Class III correction, as well as lateral tongue thrusting and crossbite treatment. The appliance consists of two Essix slip covers bonded together from the back molar to the middle of the upper cuspid tip, to retain the teeth and arches in the corrected position. The Damon Splint is manufactured from durable, aesthetically-pleasing materials.
The Damon Splint is generally used as a post treatment appliance and is designed to help maintain the correction achieved during Class II, III or cases involving arch development. The Damon Splint can be fabricated from either dual laminate or hard acrylic.
