AbstractIntroduction: The author (R. Wurgaft) has tried a unique way of splint therapy in the treatment of temporomandibular disorder. An orthopedic splint that only contact in the posterior occlusion, actually only the most distal contacts, is designed to distalize the mandible, and in turn to produce tissue remodeling of the temporomandibular joint. With this technique, it is possible to treat temporomandibular disorders in both adults and children by producing tissue remodeling. Method: Two clinical cases using this technique were performed. Result: improvement in temporomandibular disorder was obtained. Conclusion: It is possible for orthopedic splint with medial and posterior contacts only to produce TMJ remodeling in young and adult patients and to improve the TMD. Further clinical studies are warranted.
