How much for a bite splint ?

I need a new one, but I don't know how much it would cost here. Any idea ?

To stop grinding your teeth? Depends on the thickness. Mine cost about a 100 EUR (but then this is the first one that lasts more than 3 months).

Or is it something completely different?

Sorry, I mean a splint custom made by a dentist. I have one now that has been made 16 years ago, but I need a new one.

Re: How much for a bite splint ?

I had one made ca. 3 years ago by dentist in ZH: ca. 500-600 IIRC. A year later I needed adjustments, no charge.


I'm always up for saving a few francs, and frequently look for goods and services across borders... but not dentistry.

When it comes to my teeth I prefer to go local despite price differences over the border, as follow-up is a key concern for me. (Not to mention establishing a rapport and knowing I will be seen quickly in an emergency.)

YMMV.

Had been going to that dentist since I lived in Neuhausen (and Jestetten being nearer by than Schaffhausen ) and continue to go there because I trust the dentist (and it only takes 30 mins to get there)
