Splintastik

The Splintastik is a very simple plastic male and female rod and tube for use in anterior regions. The ceramic casting inserts assure accurate casting. Two sizes are available–the small size is small enough to fit into lower anteriors!

The small size also allows for open embrasures, good tooth contour, no extensive tooth reduction, and the height may be reduced if necessary. Other advantages include independent cementation and removal of bridge segments, the polished ceramic insert eliminates bubbles during investing and ensures consistent and accurate castings, and Splintastik may be cast simultaneously along with the abutment crowns in any alloy–including non-precious. Splintastik allows independent physiologic movement of segments.
