Abstract

The authors discuss the philosophy, fabrication, and use of the Gelb appliance. They recommend the appliance for daytime use for anterior displacements with reduction, unloading of the temporomandibular joint, and cervical muscular dysfunction where mandibular displacement is a perpetuating factor. This chapter also details their clinical protocol for diagnosis and appliance management.
