TMJ Standard Appliance
The TMJ Standard Appliance is commonly referred to a 'functional' appliance as it allows for generous movement of the mandible while the appliance is positioned in the mouth. This movement is important as it stimulates muscles and nerves in a manner which then facilitates repositioning and/or repair of the intra-articular TMJ disc.
As the TMJ Standard Appliance has an upper and lower channel it is the perfect repositioning and decompression appliance for when users do not need to think about what position the jaw is in, and for this reason is ideally suited to and recommended for overnight usage. May also be used during the day if desired.
