Hard/Soft 3D Printed Night Guards

A harmonizing combination of strength to fight bruxism with softening thermodynamic flexibility for cloud-like comfort. This is the next evolution in night guard technology. Hard/Soft 3D Printed night guards are digitally designed and then 3D Printed, giving these guards a similar durability to hard material night guards with thermodynamic softening technology.

Hard/Soft 3D printed night guard ideal use

Our Hard/Soft 3D printed night guards have a similar durability to hard material night guards but also include thermodynamic softening technology. This allows our 3D printed night guards to be heated up and then become more adjustable and moldable.
This is the Dandy recommended night guard because it’s highly versatile. They fit great, have a very accurate and precise fabrication process, and allow for an easy seating process when immersed in warm water before seating on the patient’s arch
Then at room temperature the 3D printed night guard will feel more rigid than a Hard/Soft. It’s important to note that unlike a standard Hard/Soft night guard, the Hard/Soft 3D printed night guard softens after being heated up. In fact, after your patient wears the Hard/Soft 3D printed night guard, it will become softer as the patient’s body temperature warms it up.

Digital design changes everything.

We’ve brought design from the lab bench to the desktop. The revolutionary virtual articulator establishes the desired contacts and function. Precise internal fit and retention are adjusted with our digital toolbox. And customization is easily added in the design process.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):

How is the hard/soft 3D printed night guard different from a regular hard/soft?

Our 3D printed hard/soft is a one-piece printed splint, while our regular hard/soft is a dual-laminate analog produced splint. The 3D printed splint gets its “softness” from thermodynamic softening technology, while the inner layer of the hard/soft is softer than the outside.

I normally prescribe a hard/soft. Should I switch to hard/soft 3D printed?

Our Hard/Soft 3D Printed night guard is our recommended splint. We believe it’s capabilities prove to be a great alternative to your regular hard/soft.

Are 3D printed night guards safe for my patients?

Yes, we only produce our night guards with biocompatible FDA 510K approved resins.

Can Dandy add posterior disclusion, canine guidance, ramping, and other additions to my order?

Yes, we can. Tell us what you need in your order notes and it is almost always a simple addition.

Is the Hard/Soft 3D a dual laminate?

No, due to its 3D printing manufacturing method, our Hard/Soft 3D Printed Night Guard is one-piece.
