The Baker Carney Deprogrammer Splint is a modified functional distraction appliance that was designed for patients who suffer from bruxism, TMD or joint pain. The splint offers a mild force that reduces 50-60% of pain overnight. Doctors will see long-term relief without the risk of occlusal destabilization.
The Deprogrammer is to be worn only at night. Patients should continue to wear the appliance at night until long term treatment is determined.
