Abstract

Microtrauma to the temporomandibular joint, the masticatory muscles, and the dentition can be significant in mandibular parafunctional activity such as nocturnal clenching and bruxing. Intraoral therapy can be useful in helping to reduce the deleterious effects of this activity. This article presents an in-office procedure for a device to reduce a delay in starting treatment and the time needed for adjustment of the device in the mouth.
