New Harmony Between Bite and Body: TMJ Pain Relief and Treatment with Aqualizer® Dental Splins
TMJ/TMD sufferers use Aqualizer® brand temporary splints for pain relief, functional improvement, and as an aide to diagnosing how much the dental bite is the cause of their problems.
It is a temporary device, and to the extent that it helps, permanent dental treatment is indicated. Dentists need to use an Aqualizer® splint to guide treatment, or there is no guarantee of the treatment matching the Aqualizer®'s effectiveness.
The Aqualizer® should be worn twice as long as it takes for pain relief, and then removed until symptoms begin reappearing. Repeat as necessary. Do not exceed eight hours of wear per twenty-four hours. Remove the Aqualizer® and discontinue use if irritation or other problems develop. Aqualizer® use life is between a few days and sometimes out to a week or so depending on the user’s bruxing clenching habits.
The Aqualizer’s® revolutionary fluid system creates perfect bite balance and stability through a minimally invasive approach to TMJ treatment. It works by allowing the muscles themselves to automatically reposition the jaw to where it naturally works best. For TMJ pain relief, restoring this balance is essential.
Unlike other available dental splints, the Aqualizer® self-adjusting oral splint is a TMJ treatment which allows the body to unravel bite distortions and establish optimal systemic function and balance. The Aqualizer® takes the uncertainty out of TMJ diagnosis and treatment. While other dental splints and TMJ treatment options can distort the jaw, causing TMJ pain, the Aqualizer® facilitates relief through ideal occlusion automatically and naturally.
What makes the Aqualizer® dental splints a different kind of TMJ treatment?
The answer is simple physics. The Aqualizer® is a new application of a basic physical law of nature called Pascal’s Law, which states that that an enclosed fluid will apply equalized fluid pressure regardless of where pressure is applied to the fluid. In other words, biting down on the Aqualizer® causes the fluid to distribute bite forces evenly across the bite, reducing TMJ pressure and pain and ensuring relief. Aqualizer® dental splints impose no preset changes. By contrast, they enable the body to naturally balance itself, resulting in TMJ pain relief and improved function.
The Aqualizer® is not just another splint. It is a new wave in TMD treatment that allows you to treat your patient’s pain quickly and accurately, saving valuable treatment time and increasing patient comfort.
The Aqualizer® is unique. Its revolutionary floating action enables the body to find and restore its own systemic function and balance to achieve dental equilibrium. The Aqualizer®’s built-in fluid system automatically eliminates the occlusal imbalances that trigger the patient’s symptoms. This fluid system works by freeing up the patient’s muscles so they can reposition the jaw to its most comfortable position, which takes the uncertainty out of reestablishing the correct bite. This is a tremendous advance.
Diagnosis no longer wastes valuable chair time. Simply remove the Aqualizer® from its package and insert it into the mouth. The Aqualizer®’s perfect occlusal balance starts TMD treatment instantly! No impressions, lab work, or time consuming dental equilibration adjustments needed! It is truly an instant splint.
Why the Aqualizer® achieves dental equilibration so quickly and easily?
The Aqualizer®’s revolutionary floating action is the key to its remarkable effectiveness. It unlocks the muscles and allows them to “unravel,” relieving muscle strain immediately. The muscles themselves correct strain-producing occlusal and mandibular malrelationship - accurately, naturally, and in all three planes of space. Pain then fades away very quickly - patients feel better in just a few minutes! It’s a giant leap forward in TMD treatment!
TMD diagnosis and treatment begins instantly without discluding or disabling the muscles:
First, use the Aqualizer® to preview the symptom improvement that an optimally balanced occlusion can provide. If the Aqualizer® relieves pain, choose the occlusal treatment plan (splint, dental equilibration, or orthodontics) most appropriate for the patient’s needs and desires. You can equilibrate the effective occlusion, (letting the Aqualizer® guide you), or make a rigid splint whose occlusion is correlated with the muscles by the Aqualizer®.
By contrast, lack of symptom improvement within a maximum of 48 hours indicates that symptoms are organic in nature, rather than functional, which makes occlusal treatment inadvisable. Further diagnostic procedures should be pursued. This differential diagnostic action of the Aqualizer® is extremely valuable.
In addition, the Aqualizer® can be worn as a temporary pain control splint to control symptoms as needed, such as at night or during daytime periods of stress and pain. To provide the most comfortable and effective TMD treatment, we offer the Aqualizer® in three sizes and three models. Replace Aqualizers® as needed after they lose their fluid. The Aqualizer® is not to be worn for more than eight hours per 24-hour period.
Emergency, temporary splint
Ready for immediate use, the Aqualizer® is inserted into the mouth directly from the package. The fluid pads make the Aqualizer® self-adjusting. The patient's body heat molds the Aqualizer® to the mouth’s shape in minutes. Save time and money while your patients benefit immediately. There are no time-consuming impressions or lab work involved.
