What makes Talon the Leading Material for interocclusal Appliances?

Availability normally determines what materials are used when ordering an interocclusal appliance for TMJ/D splints, night guards, sleep apnea, anti-snore, athletic mouth guards, fluoride trays, repositioning stents and thermoplastic moldable appliances.

The most commonly used material for construction of these appliances is a thermoplastic polyvinyl which is provided in hard/soft sheet form and heated and formed over the model under vacuum and pressure. The ongoing concerns with this method is that the material deteriorates both in colour and fit within a very short time, and the patient’s acceptance soon turns to disappointment.

The Talon Appliance however, offers the best features of a hard/soft splint while eliminating these disadvantages. The term talon refers to the material: a premixed soft, thermoplastic, resilient polymer that moulds and flexes over the fitting surface of the teeth. Before insertion the appliance is placed under warm tap water for trouble-free instant accurate fit. As the appliance cools it utilises the natural buccal and lingual interproximal undercuts for retention.

The composition remains resilient at body temperature and is very comfortable for patients without being too soft. Unlike other thermoplastic and polyvinyl’s currently available Talon will not harden overtime. It has a ‘memory’ and will not warp under normal wear and handling of the appliance. Talon maintains its original flexibility for years. What also makes Talon very appealing is that the hard acrylic is successfully chemically bonded to the processed Talon to form the splints occlusal surface, achieving a proprioceptive response with the opposing dentition.
