Bite Block: A Comprehensive Overview

A bite block is a dental device used to stabilize and position a patient’s jaw during dental procedures. It is designed to keep the patient’s mouth open comfortably and maintain a specific bite relationship between the upper and lower arches. Bite blocks are typically made of durable materials such as acrylic resin or silicone, ensuring optimal patient comfort and safety.

Purpose and Advantages of Bite Blocks
  • Jaw stabilization: Bite blocks stabilize the patient’s jaw, preventing involuntary movement during dental procedures.
  • Maintain bite relationship: They help maintain a specific bite position, ensuring accurate measurements and precise dental CAD designs.
  • Enhanced access: Bite blocks allow better access and visibility to the oral cavity, facilitating various procedures such as crown preparation, tooth restoration, and orthodontic treatments.
  • Patient comfort: Bite blocks are designed to provide optimal comfort during extended dental procedures by reducing jaw fatigue.
  • Improved accuracy: By maintaining a consistent bite relationship, bite blocks enable the creation of accurate dental CAD designs.
  • Time efficiency: The use of bite blocks minimizes the need for readjustment during procedures, resulting in efficient treatment.
Bite Block Dental – What are they?

During a clinical procedure, bite block dental designs are used to keep a patient’s mouth, and the jaw opens wide enough. These small devices, also known as mouth props, are designed to provide the strength to prevent the patient from closing down while also providing a soft enough surface to provide patient comfort. Bite blocks can be disposable as well as reusable, and reusable blocks must be sterilized or pasteurized properly.

Design and Fabrication Procedure

Digital Design:

  • Utilizing advanced dental CAD software, such as Bestfit Dental CAD Designing, a digital model of the bite block is created.
  • Precise measurements and specifications are inputted, ensuring a customized fit for each patient.


Digital Manufacturing:

  • Once the design is finalized, it is sent to a milling machine or 3D printer for fabrication.
  • High-quality materials, such as medical-grade resins or silicone, are used to ensure durability and patient safety.



  • After fabrication, the bite block undergoes finishing processes, including smoothing any rough edges and ensuring proper fit and function.
  • It is then sterilized and made ready for clinical use.
