Kellie was referred to us for the correction of her jaw joint dysfunction and click. She also had a severe teeth grinding and clenching habit.
Her treatment involved bite stabilisation with a Neuromuscular Orthotic for 3 months followed by Damon Clear Braces with elastics for 24 months to reposition her jaw. However during her treatment, her grinding was so severe that her orthotic was abraded away losing the jaw position we had achieved. We had to re-stabilise her bite and adjunctively use muscle relaxant injections which ended up extending her treatment by a further 6 months.
