Temporomandibular (TMJ) splints continue to reduce or eliminate jaw pain. One option that many clinicians turn to is the Phase 1 Myotronic Splint from Johns Dental Lab.The Myotronic splint is a transitional splint normally constructed with high-cuspid occlusion to maintain a proper condyle position. The cost of a myotronic splint is more than a traditional splint, but significantly less than a phase 2 option: (bite restorer, crown and bridge restoration or orthodontics). All are used to maintain a longer term temporomandibular bite position.
The Myotronic system uses electronic pulses to relax the patients muscles allowing for a more exact bite to construct an accurate splint.
