The appliance is temporary, much like a cast on a broken arm, whose purpose is to re-align the jaw, teeth, and muscles into the proper position for maximum medical improvement prior to a more permanent solution. At Lunn Dentistry, we monitor our TMD/TMJ patients for improvement and/or make adjustments to the appliance during the Phase 1 Treatment, which typically lasts 4 to 5 months. Patients should expect to visit our office following delivery of the appliance according to a dentist prescribed schedule, depending upon how their treatment is progressing.
