Are you looking for a solution to relieve the pain and discomfort caused by TMJ disorder? If so, our experts in Istanbul, Turkey, have the perfect solution for you: Splint Therapy! This form of orthodontic treatment is an effective way to treat TMJ, or temporomandibular joint, problems.
A splint, also known as a specialized mouthguard, is used in TMD treatment. The splint covers all of your teeth and it helps resolve TMD symptoms by allowing the ligaments and muscles in the jaw to relax, preventing clenching and grinding, adjusting the bite angle back to a neutral position, and avoiding added wear and tear on teeth.
At Estedian Dental, we use the latest technologies and techniques to provide our patients with the best possible results. Our dentists will arrange for an exam and consultation to understand your specific concerns and determine if splint therapy is the right treatment for you. In some cases, dental imaging may be necessary to fully understand the underlying causes of TMD. But rest assured, our experts are dedicated to finding the right solution to restore full function and relieve your pain.

Splint therapy refers to the use of splints, or removable oral appliances, to help correct issues with the bite, jaw joint, or muscles used for chewing and speaking.
The type of splint required, the difficulty of the case, and the dentist's training and expertise can all affect the price of splint therapy in Turkey. However, compared to most other countries, dental care in Turkey, including splint therapy, is typically less expensive.
Splint therapy can help alleviate symptoms of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), bruxism (teeth grinding), and other oral-facial pain. It can also help improve bite alignment, reduce stress on the jaw joint, and prevent further damage to the teeth and gums.
In Turkey, splint therapy is typically performed by a dental specialist, such as an orthodontist or a prosthodontist. The dentist will first evaluate the patient's dental health and symptoms, and then take impressions of the teeth to create a custom-fit splint. The splint is then worn as directed by the dentist to treat the specific oral health issue.
Splint therapy is generally not painful, but some patients may experience mild discomfort or pressure in the jaw or teeth when first wearing the splint. This should resolve within a few days as the patient adjusts to the splint.
