Objectives: To manufacture an occlusal splint based on CAD/CAM technology. Materials and methods: Plaster casts made from oral impressions were scanned with CAD/CAM technology. The CAD/CAM device employed was a structured light-based scanner. CAD generates a 3D digital image that can be used to design the splint. During the CAM phase, the D-Bite (Digital Bite) was created from a block of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) with a thickness of about 20 mm. Results: The production of a digitally designed D-Bite (Digital Bite). The D-Bite manufacturing technique is standardized thanks to computer-assisted procedures. Conclusions: The D-Bite manufactured with CAD/CAM technology provided excellent biological and esthetic results, and the manufacturing technique was simple and rapid.
