I've had a couple of Keller NTI +'s lately that were too loose when we tried them in, so I tried to reline them with thermoplastic beads, but of course they wouldn't bond to the NTI's. Out of desparation I bonded a coat of Sim 2 to the NTI, and guess what? A new use for Sim 2!

I'm still slightly confused....quiet, JK. Wink

You bonded Sim 2 in and.....

...added acrylic?
...added TPBs?
...the Sim 2 was all you used and it filled the gaps to make it tighter??

Sorry if I'm dense, my mother did it to me. Rolling Eyes

I clean the surface, thin coat of Sim 2, light cure, add thermoplastic beads (heated of course), fit and cool as normal. Works great! Best of luck.Tom

Speaking of NTI's, does anyone have any luck getting any insurance coverage for these?

Of course that depends on the individual insurance contract, but when it's a covered procedure use code 9940. As you know some contracts exclude night guards completely and some excude unless the perio is AAP 2 or greater. Some fun, eh?
