The effectiveness of an extreme canine-protected splint with limited lateral movement in treatment of temporomandibular dysfunction.


This study suggests that a splint design incorporating extreme canine guidance with limited lateral movement may be effective in the treatment of temporomandibular dysfunction (TMD) symptoms. Fifty consecutively treated TMD patients were evaluated with the TMJ Scale before and after treatment. A group of 11 similar patients identified as having TMD, but who declined treatment, were used as a control group.
