TMJ screening is essential for an effective TMD treatment and before any occlusal rehabilitation for prophylactic, therapeutic, prognostic and forensic reasons; this can be simply carried out by the manual function diagnostics.
Due to the self-adjusting function of AquaSplint a quick help, pain relief, muscle relaxation, and the determination of the centric relation can be achieved in a short treatment period, further the AquaSplint – which is a prefabricated water pads- can be immediately and individually adapted and applied without impressions, bite registration or grinding.
