Introducing the Restful Jaw – The Only Device Designed to Protect the Patient’s Jaw
Date:7/22/2014

Saint Paul, Minn. (PRWEB) July 22, 2014

The Restful Jaw Company announces its latest innovation in dental comfort technology, the Restful Jaw®. The FDA-registered external device is clinically proven to help support the patient’s jaw while minimizing jaw pain, fatigue and soreness during dental procedures. As such, patients and dentists can experience shorter treatment times when patients do not need to take breaks or terminate procedures because of pain.

The Restful Jaw is a vital solution in helping more than 31 million U.S. adults who experience jaw pain and discomfort from even routine dental care, and more than five million patients who terminate dental care due to unbearable jaw pain.

Dr. Eric Schiffman, D.D.S., M.S., an international expert in TMD diagnosis and treatment, invented the device to help prevent dental procedures from causing TMD or exacerbating patient’s existing symptomatic/asymptomatic jaw conditions.

“During my 30-plus years of treating patients with TMD, I continuously hear how they fear and avoid their regular dental appointments, let alone any extra treatment, in an effort to limit pain,” said Dr. Schiffman. “Dentists can attest to how difficult and time consuming it is to treat patients who experience jaw pain during and after dental treatments – which is why I was driven to develop a solution.”

With an affordable price, the Restful Jaw provides dentists with a simple solution to help reduce treatment time, improve jaw stability, and prevent jaw locking and overextension while reducing medicolegal risks by supporting and protecting the patient’s jaw.

The external jaw support device can be quickly placed on most adult-size patients, and supports the patient’s jaw in the open mouth position with a memory foam cushion – meaning patients do not have to tense their jaw muscles to hold their mouth open or resist the downward forces applied during treatment. The device was strategically designed to avoid interference with dental work, and will not block access to the patient’s airway.

“The stability provided by this device helps the patient relax more and holds their tongue much more still. My procedure time decreases significantly (approx. 30 percent) and does not get in my way or my assistant’s way during any of the procedures. One patient wished we would have used it during their last implant surgery,” said Michael J. Lassle, D.M.D.

The Restful Jaw is ideal for long procedures that require patients to hold their mouth open for an extended duration, or for patients sensitive to jaw pain and fatigue such as TMD/TMJ patients.

Main indications include:

  •     Any procedure that places significant force on the patient’s jaw such as extractions
  •     Asymptomatic patients with signs of TMD
  •     Patients with movement disorders such as Tardive dyskinesia, Parkinson, MS, hyperactivity
  •     Endodontics, periodontics, prosthodontics, restorative and oral surgery
  •     Geriatric patients

“I had residual jaw pain following a cleaning, so I was nervous about getting additional but necessary dental work done, especially since it required substantial pressure on my jaw. When my new dentist used the Restful Jaw device for this procedure, it was reassuring to know they were taking my TMJ seriously,” said a patient from Minnesota. "The fact that they had the device assured me they were more aware of the issue and that made me feel more comfortable. In the future, I would screen a dental clinic first to find out if they have this device for TMJ patients, like me."
