Myosa® for Teeth Grinders Hard Version - TGH
Protection of the teeth from grinding with improved retention
The Myosa® TGH is a single-size, custom mouldable appliance designed to provide immediate symptom relief for patients with bruxism. The durable, dual-layered appliance provides an alternative to traditional flat plane splints and allows for better retention when moulding.
Directions for Moulding
The Myosa® TGH is fitted over the teeth and worn at night while sleeping and can also be worn during the day if daytime grinding is an issue. It features a unique flat base designed to protect the teeth and jaws from the effects of night time teeth grinding and is easy to mould in under two minutes.
Place the TGH into bowl of freshly boiled water upside down (100°C/212°F) for 60 seconds.
Gently lift the TGH from the boiled water using a spoon. Shake off excess water to bring the surface temperature to a bearable level and quickly proceed with the next steps!
Use a mirror to line up the centre of the TGH with the centre line of the upper teeth, then press firmly against front teeth and molars.
Close your mouth while biting down firmly on the TGH. Suck in strongly and press edges into teeth and gum line through the lips and cheeks for 20 seconds.
Place the appliance in cold water for two minutes to cool then reinsert to check fit. The appliance can be remoulded by repeating the fitting procedure if necessary.
Cleaning the Myosa® TGH
The Myosa® appliance should be cleaned under warm running water every time the patient removes it from their mouth.
Use Myoclean™ tablets to thoroughly clean twice a week. Myoclean™ is the recommended cleaning agent for all MRC appliances.
