Relief of TMJ disorders and snoring

The TMJ-MBV is a sleeping appliance for snorers and mouth breathers. It features four large breathing holes and a 7mm air spring base for increased bite opening and gentle temporomandibular joint (TMJ) decompression. If a larger appliance is required, there is also an 11mm base version available. The TMJ-MBV allows for free movement of the mandible when in place, ideal for patients with an existing TMJ disorder.

TMJ-MBV Design Features

The TMJ-MBV is specifically designed for mouth breathers and snorers, unable to nasal breath comfortably, who suffer from TMJ disorder symptoms. The higher vertical sides of the TMJ-MBV provide better comfort and retention, particularly when the mouth is open.
