The efficacy of these splints is discussed, reported indications and contraindications are defined, and favorable and unfavorable characteristics reported by patients are presented. Maxillary and mandibular soft splint designs that have been found to be clinically acceptable are illustrated and an easy and rapid technique for adjusting and polishing a soft splint is proposed.
