TMJ Appliances



TMJ stands for Temporomandibular Joint which is the joint that connects the lower jaw to the skull. Pain in the TMJ is commonly referred to as temporomandibular disorder (TMD).

Causes of TMJ Pain:

  • Teeth grinding or clenching (bruxism)
  • Arthritis or degeneration of the joint
  • Dislocation of the disc between the ball and socket
  • Stress and muscle tension


TMJ Appliances:

  • TMJ Splint: A custom-made dental splint that is designed to relieve pressure on the TMJ and provide support to the jaw muscles.
  • Orthotic Splint in Tooth Color Acrylic: An orthotic splint designed to balance the bite and reduce stress on the TMJ.
  • Anterior Bite Plane: A splint that is placed on the front teeth to reduce the bite force and provide relief from TMJ pain.
  • Bite Plane: A custom-made splint that is designed to reduce the bite force and provide support to the jaw muscles.
  • Anterior Deprogrammer: An appliance designed to reduce muscle tension and improve the bite.
  • Lucia Jig: An orthopedic device used to reposition the jaw and improve the bite.

These appliances can provide relief from TMJ pain, improve bite and jaw function, and prevent further damage to the joint.
