HOW THE TMD APPLIANCE™ WORKS

TMD Appliance
The TMD Appliance™ performs much the same as a TMJ Appliance™, only it is specially designed for patients who require a daytime splint for the relief of TMJ symptoms.

It treats symptoms by decompressing the TM joints through its aerofoil shaped base. The customisable, low-profile design allows for tight and comfortable fit for patients who need to maintain clear speech during the daytime.

The TMJ System
The TMJ System™ is comprised of a series of soft intra-oral appliances specifically designed to assist in the diagnosis and symptom relief of TMJ disorder.

The appliances have a thick section at the back which relieves pressure by gently decompressing the inflamed joints when placed in the mouth. They also automatically correct the alignment of the lower jaw and stretch the tight and painful muscles around the jaws, head and neck area, resulting in an immediate decrease in pain. Over long periods, this helps to decrease long term pain. Bruxing (grinding of teeth) is also prevented by the patented aerofoil shaped base and dual moulded design.

Directions for use
The TMD Appliance™ is most effective when used during the day in combination with the TMJ Appliance™ during the night. It can be used for immediate symptom relief throughout the day and is particularly effective at reducing clicking and acute TM Joint pain. It is also suitable for patients who have missing molars.

HOW THE BRUXOGARD™ SOFT WORKS

Bruxing
Bruxing is defined as grinding, gnashing or clenching of the teeth. It is mostly an unconscious habit as a result of tension or anxiety.

Patients who show long term damage from bruxing can be a restorative nightmare. Occlusal wear, mobility, cusp fracture and TMJ symptoms are evident when these cases arise. Resolving the causes of bruxing goes far beyond the dentist’s scope of treatment. However, limiting or preventing further damage from this common problem is the role of every general dental practitioner.

Patients are given limited options for a solution to their bruxing symptoms. Full coverage splints have been used for years to limit the damaging effects of bruxing, but are difficult to fit and adjust. Patients are reluctant to cover the costs and would rather live with the problem, often leading to further damage of the teeth.

Bruxogard™ Soft
The Bruxogard™ Soft is a mouldable appliance that fits tightly to the upper arch for increased comfort and retention while sleeping. It is designed for patients who have bruxing issues and are looking for a cost-effective alternative to dental-made appliances. The Bruxogard™ can be fitted in 1 minute by the patient or dentist, and provides a soft, flat-plane splint to protect the dentition and the TM Joints from the effects of bruxing, grinding and clenching.

The Bruxogard™ Soft can be used to effectively manage and reduce bruxing symptoms without time consuming procedures. The appliance can be fitted in less than 4 minutes by either the patient or dental professional, with all fitting and usage instructions included in the pack.

It’s a low-cost initial treatment that’s ideal for initial symptom reduction.

Patient Selection
The Bruxogard™ Soft is designed for patients who only display signs of moderate bruxing or are less than 12 years of age.

The Bruxogard™ Soft will wear out after a period of time and should be replaced with a new one when this occurs. If rapid wear is a problem, the Bruxogard™ Soft can be replaced with a conventional, full coverage splint made from acrylic, or the Bruxogard™ Hard.

Once patients see the damage inflicted to the Bruxogard™ by their bad habits, they may become more aware of their problem, and motivated to seek a cure.
