The Aqualizer® is not just another splint. It is a new wave in TMD treatment that allows you to treat your patient’s pain quickly and accurately, saving valuable treatment time and increasing patient comfort.
The Aqualizer® is unique. Its revolutionary floating action enables the body to find and restore its own systemic function and balance to achieve dental equilibrium. The Aqualizer®’s built-in fluid system automatically eliminates the occlusal imbalances that trigger the patient’s symptoms. This fluid system works by freeing up the patient’s muscles so they can reposition the jaw to its most comfortable position, which takes the uncertainty out of reestablishing the correct bite. This is a tremendous advance.
Diagnosis no longer wastes valuable chair time. Simply remove the Aqualizer® from its package and insert it into the mouth. The Aqualizer®’s perfect occlusal balance starts TMD treatment instantly! No impressions, lab work, or time consuming dental equilibration adjustments needed! It is truly an instant splint.
The Aqualizer®’s revolutionary floating action is the key to its remarkable effectiveness. It unlocks the muscles and allows them to “unravel,” relieving muscle strain immediately. The muscles themselves correct strain-producing occlusal and mandibular malrelationship - accurately, naturally, and in all three planes of space. Pain then fades away very quickly - patients feel better in just a few minutes! It’s a giant leap forward in TMD treatment!
First, use the Aqualizer® to preview the symptom improvement that an optimally balanced occlusion can provide. If the Aqualizer® relieves pain, choose the occlusal treatment plan (splint, dental equilibration, or orthodontics) most appropriate for the patient’s needs and desires. You can equilibrate the effective occlusion, (letting the Aqualizer® guide you), or make a rigid splint whose occlusion is correlated with the muscles by the Aqualizer®.
By contrast, lack of symptom improvement within a maximum of 48 hours indicates that symptoms are organic in nature, rather than functional, which makes occlusal treatment inadvisable. Further diagnostic procedures should be pursued. This differential diagnostic action of the Aqualizer® is extremely valuable.
In addition, the Aqualizer® can be worn as a temporary pain control splint to control symptoms as needed, such as at night or during daytime periods of stress and pain. To provide the most comfortable and effective TMD treatment, we offer the Aqualizer® in three sizes and three models. Replace Aqualizers® as needed after they lose their fluid. The Aqualizer® is not to be worn for more than eight hours per 24-hour period.
Ready for immediate use, the Aqualizer® is inserted into the mouth directly from the package. The fluid pads make the Aqualizer® self-adjusting. The patient's body heat molds the Aqualizer® to the mouth’s shape in minutes. Save time and money while your patients benefit immediately. There are no time-consuming impressions or lab work involved.
As the Aqualizer®’s fluid and occlusal vertical dimension diminishes with wear, it automatically shows you exactly where to equilibrate. Occlusal indicator wax or thick articulating paper marks premature displacing contacts accurately. Your practice may choose to use the Tekscan T-Scan® or other occlusal analysis systems as well. The Aqualizer® guides dental equilibration step-by-step.
The Aqualizer® is disposable. After it has lost its fluid and you’ve eliminated the interferences the worn Aqualizer® has shown you, simply discard it. In some cases you may want to give the patient a second Aqualizer® to find and eliminate the smallest interferences that may be hidden beneath those you’ve already removed. Balancing the bite becomes crystal clear for the first time!
