All of our appliances are guaranteed for 90 days of normal wear. Broken appliances will be evaluated in the lab and cost if any, will be determined at that time.


All of our appliances are guaranteed to fit the model provided. Should the appliance not fit the model provided to your satisfaction, we will remake it at no charge to you. Please send the original model with all remakes or call to discuss.

When Submitting a Case

  • Please try to ship more than one case in each box or tape boxes together to save on your shipping cost.
  • Carefully inspect your working models for voids, distortions and bands out of place. Our finished product depends on the quality of your patient’s model.
  • Please label your patient’s name on the bottom of the model, especially when more than one case is sent in a box.
  • Supply upper and lower models whenever the teeth are to be repositioned or if an extremely close bite creates a potential for occlusal interference.
