TMJ DAY APPLIANCES

Mandibular Orthopedic Repositioning Appliance (M.O.R.A)

The Apex Daytime MORA are designed to reposition the mandible to address chronic disc-displacement of skeletal and muscular asymmetry and maintain proper airway. Orthotic features includes a lingual anatomical ridge to guide disclussion and protect contralateral joint during movement. This design allows the patient to function normally at the new position while reducing pain/inflammation in the TMJ.

The Apex Daytime MORA is available in 3 design options: Daypex-D1 (acrylic with ball clasp), Daypex-D2 (acrylic with ball clasp and lingual wire connector) and Daypex-D3 (thermoformed). Each design functions as a positioning stent to correct vertical dimension, rotation, cant and protrusive changes. These three designs allow for them to be fabricated based on specific concerns for narrow arches, anterior crowding, strength and overall appliance volume/comfort.

ACRYLIC

Features: Acrylic and ball clasp design provides adjustability and added durability.

Indications:

  • Patients that require added strength and durability
  • Present with anterior crowding and/or limited undercuts

COMPACT

Features: Lingual wire provides added comfort and reduced lingual thickness.

Indications:

  • Narrow arches/limited tongue space
  • Require minimal lingual interference

THERMOFORMED

Features: Biocompatible material for added comfort, minimal thickness and reduced acrylic.

Indications:

  • Ideal for patients who are sensitive or allergic to metal
  • Inter-occlusal distances less then 1.5mm

*** Preferred design based on comfort***
