Splint therapy is a common treatment for orofacial pain related to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), but it can be a significant source of confusion for both the dentist and the dental laboratory. This article will help readers to better understand what needs to be examined in order to properly diagnose patients who are suffering from an internal derangement of their TMJs and occluso-muscular issues. Readers will learn about the appropriate splint device options, what can be expected from each treatment, and how the dental laboratory can offer positive and impactful contributions to the process.
