Orthodontic Gelb Splint
The Gelb Splint is used to reposition the mandible and can also be used to recapture the disc. The Gelb Splint is fabricated on the mandibular arch. It is fabricated in cold cure splint acrylic to a wax bite that brings the mandible and condyle into a more anterior, inferior position in the fossa. The posterior is connected by a lingual bar. Slight indexing of the upper lingual cusps tips is used to maintain the advanced position. The standard clasping is two ball clasps for retention.
Upper and lower stone models and a wax bite to the required advanced position open a minimum of 2 mm.
