tmj dental recomended mouthguard
I was wondering if you ever heard of pure power mouth guard? My 16 year old daughter suffers from tmj just had arthrosentisis on right side of face to release her jaw which was locked for 4 days, the dr. said to do follow up with regular tmj specialist for mouth guard. Came across a local guy who specializes in pure power mouth guard. Mostly used by athletes so he says and on the net as well, but I have not seen any research for tmj. He wants to use a tens machine to relax the muscles then take an imprint of mouth and for her to wear this mouth guard 22 hours a day to fix problem. Can you tell me if you heard of this it is also called PPM Makkar.
the cost of this procedure is 2500.00 and my insurance only pays 625.00
I would appreciate any help you can give. ASAP
