Aqualizer® splint therapy for diagnosing TMJ dysfunction and relieving pain in the joint

The revolutionary Aqualizer® liquid splint system is different from any other product on the market for treating TMJ. It is unique. Its revolutionary floating effect allows the body to find and restore its own systemic function and balance in the joint without invasive intervention.

An aqualizer is a short-term temporary diagnostic splint for patients with TMJ problems and pain. What is extremely important is a non-invasive, reversible, inexpensive and pain-relieving test that helps the orthodontist correctly and definitively diagnose a joint problem BEFORE treatment, reducing the risk of errors and their consequences. Aqualizer is not a substitute for treatment

Reducing pain after using Aqualizer® confirms that pain is caused or aggravated by occlusion, and not by another cause. A lack of improvement in symptoms for a maximum of 48 hours indicates that the symptoms are caused by other factors that make occlusive treatment impossible.

Over a million patients experienced rapid pain relief with the Aqualizer splint

Aqualizer® offers the best functional treatment planning with a preliminary analysis of the harmony between the teeth, lower jaw and the ensplint muscle complex. It relieves pain in the field of orthodontic muscles during treatment, without impeding the teeth movement.

  • The built-in Aqualizer® fluid system automatically removes occlusive imbalances that cause the patient's painful symptoms.
  • Splint fluid base works to relax the patient's muscles so that they can move the jaw to the most comfortable position, allowing the body to naturally find relief from pain and balance in the joint.
  • • In contrast to most joint splints, an aqualizer does not just “turn off” the bite for a long time or guesses optimal occlusion - this is a huge step forward in the treatment of joint problems.

Clinic Confidencia was one of the first in Russia to start working with the aquasplint system and to offer patients to undergo joint diagnosis and compensation for pain syndrome with their help. Any configuration of the Aqualizer splits is always available, they do not have to be ordered and wait, which is extremely important for patients with a joint.

What is the difference between Aqualizer and other articular splints?

Aqualizer is not just another joint splint. This is a new wave of treatment of dysfunction of the temporomandibular joint, which allows you to quickly and accurately treat the pain of the patient, saving valuable treatment time and increasing patient comfort.

It is a self-adjusting splint that creates the perfect bite balance and stability through a minimally invasive approach to joint treatment. It works by allowing the muscles to automatically move the jaw to where it naturally works best.

Aqualizer can work effectively even with uncertainty of diagnosis. While other dental splints and treatments can worsen the situation, causing even more pain.

Instant optimization of bite biomechanics
Keeping jaws relaxed
Isolation of problematic contacts and pressure zones of the teeth in the bite
The pain disappears in just a few minutes and without pills
Perfect occlusal balance through natural balancing of the bite by the body

What is a split system Aqualizer?

  1. This is a soft and flexible medical silicone splint with two small flat pads in the side sections filled with distilled water.
  2. The thermoactive material from which Aqualizer® is made, within a few minutes, takes the anatomical shape of the patient's dentition, without creating discomfort when worn.

How does the Aqualizer articular splint work?

The Aqualizer Splint operates on the principle of hydrostatics, based on Pascal's law: the pressure in any place of the fluid at rest is the same in all directions and is uniformly transmitted throughout it. When the jaws are clenched, the fluid inside the splint absorbs the load and evenly distributes it over the ensplint area of the occlusion.

The Aqualizer liquid closed system balances both sides of the jaw dynamically and continuously. Thanks to this, muscle function is maintained, muscle imbalances disappear, muscle coordination improves. In minutes, the headache subsides, as well as pains in the muscles of the shoulders, neck and back, giving patients relief.

Aqualizer allows the body to naturally balance itself, without affecting the position of the joint.

How to use Splint Aqualizer?

Why joint pain can appear and how to understand why?

Stress. Our neuromuscular system constantly responds to external stress factors influencing the environment. Day by day we overcome stress, panic or fear. During stress, starting to clench your teeth, this can occur both consciously and unconsciously at night. Subconsciously, we clench our teeth at night or grind them. In the morning we wake up with a headache, especially in the frontal region or temples. Such a headache indicates tension in the muscles of the head, neck or jaw.

Correction of bite. Quite often, a new filling, crown or bridge prosthesis causes gnashing or gritting of teeth. There is a feeling that they are too high and interfere more likely when biting. Gradually, a new bite occurs, which again can lead to muscle tension.

An orthodontist usually works with such problems, conducting diagnostics and making an individual corrective bite splint. Aqualizer is the only splint that you can immediately recommend to each patient without training or laboratory procedures.

Due to its filling with water, Aqualizer automatically adapts to the anatomical features of the patient. Pain or muscle tension immediately reduced. Thus, Aqualizer performs several functions - and painkillers, and diagnostics - which are extremely important in the treatment of temporomandibular joint dysfunction syndrome.

Classic signs of joint dysfunction syndrome:

  • Earache
  • Headache
  • Photophobia
  • Teeth grinding (bruxism)
  • Pain in the lower jaw
  • Difficult swallowing
  • Backache
  • Tension or muscle spasms of the neck

Recommendations for Aqualizer patients

  1. Only the attending dentist selects the correct size of the splint Aqualizer depending on the patient's occlusal features.
  2. It is most convenient to wear a splint on the upper jaw, the teeth should lie evenly on the splint pads.
  3. If you have a feeling that Aqualizer can slip off your teeth, then you need to squeeze it a little harder once so that the shape adapts to your teeth.
  4. Constantly strongly press on the Aqualizer. It is not necessary to relax the chewing muscles, the teeth should take the most relaxed position on it.
