Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJD) has plagued a lot of people with pain over the years. Various methods of relief have been produced to ease the pain caused by TMJD and increase the quality of life - one of such treatment is Cerezen. With the introduction of Cerezen, there have been significant improvements and favourable reviews by patients.
Before we delve into Cerezen and it is benefits, we should first understand what TMJD is all about.
Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJD) is conditions that involve pain in the jaw joint and the surrounding muscles responsible for the movement of the jaw. There is a wide range of symptoms associated with TMJD, and they are felt differently by different people, and in a way, tend to affect the quality of life.
The symptoms of TMJD include;
A bite splint is usually the most conventional treatment for TMJD. A bite splint is a mouthpiece, made of plastic; it is worn to prevent the meeting of the upper and lower teeth.
Splints, no doubt reduces pain caused by TMJD, but they have long term side effects-because of the discomfort they create when you wear them and their intrusive design.
Cerezen is a customised, removable device, that is made to reduce the pain and other symptoms of TMJD. It works by fitting it into the ear canal. Cerezen can easily be removed and inserted, as it has a small retraction post - when they are inserted, it is barely noticeable from the outside, making it very discreet to use. Wearing a Cerezen will not affect your hearing, as the device is hollow, and allows for the regular travel of sound.
To get a Cerezen, you need to be guided by a dentist. Contact us at Cosmetic Dentistry Clinic London for help, or visit our clinic at Harley Street, London. Our experienced and qualified dentists will always be ready to help.
There are benefits associated with the use of Cerezen. These include;
The ear canal and the Temporomandibular joint are positioned closely, and this affects the shape of the ear canal at various activities of the jaw like eating, smiling and even speaking.
With the Cerezen device inserted, it becomes more extensive in its dynamic geometry than the ear canal by at least 20% -this happens when the jaw is closed. The Cerezen applies minimal pressure to the walls of the ear canal and the Temporomandibular joint, encouraging the jaw and surrounding muscles to relax.
Treatment with Cerezen is in several steps which includes:
This is the point where you meet with a dentist to determine whether Cerezen is suitable for you or not. Your dentist will start by diagnosing your TMJD, and if Cerezen is not ideal for you, he or she will recommend the appropriate treatment option.
Since Cerezen is customised, this means only you can wear the one made for you. To produce this device, an impression of your ear will be taken; the process should take about twenty minutes.
With an estimate of about two weeks after the impression has been taken, the Cerezen will be ready. Once it is prepared, you will have to return to the dentist, to retrieve it - the dentist will demonstrate to you how it is used (insertion and removal).
Cerezen is helpful to anyone who has TMJD. However, before you get a Cerezen, your suitability will be determined by your dentist during the consultation.
Cerezen can be worn at all time —it should be removed; when bathing or during any other activities like a contact sport. TMJD can now be significantly relieved through Cerezen.
