Tooth grinding and clenching can be a problem for some patients. Often it is caused by anxiety or stress, sleep apnea or due to orthodontic issues such as an overbite. In turn this pressure on the teeth and jaw can cause Temporo-Mandibular Joint Disorders (TMJD). Common symptoms of TMJD include headaches, a pain or ache in the jaw, lockjaw, problems when chewing and earache. Living with these symptoms can be painful and frustrating, however now there is Cerezen. A device that can be used to treat these problems effectively while giving patients a new lease of life.
Cerezen is a small device that fits neatly and safely into the opening of the ear canal. Inserting this small earpiece can eliminate most or all of the symptoms of TMJD. The revolutionary appliance works by expanding the size of the ear canal. It is the space in this area that causes the problem. As the area is expanded, subtle pressure is applied to the temporomandibular muscle to encourage the jaw to return to its correct position. This action minimises the body’s response to clench the jaw and the muscles surrounding it.
First of all, you will need to book in for a consultation with one of our highly trained dentists here at Pearl Dental Clinic. During the initial consultation, we will examine you and make a diagnosis of your symptoms. If Cerezen is the correct course of treatment for you then impressions of the ear canal will be taken. The device is custom made to fit your exact specification. Therefore, your moulds will be sent off to the Cerezen lab where they can manufacture your 3D printed, customised earpiece. This should take around two weeks. Following this, you will be invited back to the clinic for the final fitting.
Cerezen costs £695 at Pearl Dental Clinic. The Cerezen Consultation appointment costs £39. You can spread the cost of Cerezen treatment interest-free with our 0% finance plans. It usually takes only a few hours to arrange finance.
