BIORTHOSIS is a next-generation occlusal split used to treat temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. The advanced technology and design of BIORTHOSIS means that it is precisely fitted to your teeth and mouth, giving you maximum comfort while working to correct problems with your bite. Your splint also comes with an integrated veneer and is made from crystal clear materials that are nearly invisible, allowing you to maintain your natural smile and giving you a treatment that is not easily noticeable.
BIORTHOSIS therapy works by permanently setting your jaw in a relaxed position. As you continue to wear your appliance it will gradually correct the positioning of your jaw, using biomechanical principals to allow your jaw joints, chewing muscles and teeth to work together in the most ideal way possible. You can expect your BIOTHORSIS appliance to:
- Halt the progression of joint damage
- Reduce TMJ clicking and other symptoms
- Increase a low bite
- Correct the position of the jaw joints
- Protect your tooth enamel from excessive wear
- Provide relief from discomfort and pain of the jaw joints and related muscles
- Prevent teeth grinding
Your appliance will be created using a model of your teeth, and our dentists will provide you with instructions on how to wear and care for your appliance. You will most likely need to wear your BIORTHOSIS splint 24/7, and depending on your needs, our dentists may instruct you to wear your split for as few as several weeks or as long as several months. Your appliance is specially designed to ensure you do not experience any difficulties with eating, speaking or maintaining proper oral hygiene. You will meet with our dentists regularly throughout your treatment to monitor your progress and ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
