Castle Ceramics Treats TMJ-Related Problems

Castle Ceramics offers splints and deprogrammers, among other pressure form services, for patients and dental practices.

[Tamworth, 26/4/2017] – Castle Ceramics, a dental laboratory in Staffordshire, gives patients pressure form services suitable for TMJ-related (Temporomandibular Joint) problems. These pressure form services include dental splints and de-programmers used to relieve pressure and stress on teeth and muscles, caused by TMJ problems.

Temporomandibular Joint Problems

Problems occur with the Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) when the upper and lower jaw do not meet normally. Issues related with TMJ are jaw muscle and joint pain, headaches, even neck and shoulder pain. If ignored, it can lead to degenerative joint disease and osteoarthritis.

Splints and Deprogrammers

The splints and deprogrammers offered by Castle Ceramics include:

• Essix or Trutain Retainer
• Flat Occlusal Plane
• Anterior De-programmers for Short term and long term
• Kois Deprogrammer
• Dawson Dual “B” Splint
• Michigan or Tanner Splints

The Essix or Trutain retainers are used to guide the alignment of teeth. The Flat Occlusal Plane, also called a hard night guard, help upper and lower teeth make good contact while the Anterior De-programmers relax patients’ jaw muscles by disengaging molars.

The Kois Deprogrammer is similar to retainers, used by dentists to evaluate patients’ bite. The Dawson Dual “B” Splint helps reduce the symptoms of bruxism or excessive teeth grinding, by disengaging teeth except for incisors. The Michigan or Tanner Splints are also used to alleviate discomfort from bruxism. The Michigan splints are for the upper dental arch while the Tanner splints are for the lower arch.

Castle Ceramics fabricates the splints and deprogrammers as quickly as three days. They can be reached on 01827 818783.
