Stabilisation Splint Therapy for Temporomandibular Pain Dysfunction

At DentMax Dental Health Clinic, we understand the importance of maintaining excellent dental health and addressing temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain, which can significantly impact daily life quality. Statistics show that 85% of patients undergoing stabilisation splint therapy experience reduced pain and discomfort.

What is Temporomandibular Pain?

Temporomandibular pain is the discomfort and pain felt in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) area, which can make chewing, speaking, and other jaw movements difficult. TMJ disorders can have various causes, and appropriate treatment methods can alleviate this pain.

What is a Stabilisation Splint?

A stabilisation splint is a custom-made appliance worn over the teeth to help alleviate TMJ pain by stabilising the jaw joint, allowing muscles to relax and reducing pain. Splints can be worn at night or during specific times of the day as recommended by your dentist. However, there is a specific application method where stabilisation splints are worn 24/7 before orthodontic treatment.

Stabilisation Splint Therapy and Orthodontic Treatment

This process ensures that orthodontic treatment is more effective and provides lasting results. The use of a stabilisation splint helps eliminate TMJ disorders while orthodontic treatment aligns the teeth correctly.
