Medical Eponyms

A dental splint destined to control the Stent* is fitted to any existing teeth or to the alveolar ridge (see figs. 1 and 2), and the sulcus is deepened per oram to the satisfaction of the dental surgeon.

*The dental composition used for this purpose is that put forward by Stent, and a mould composed of it is known us a “Stent”
