Muscle Deprogramming Guide

Muscle Deprogramming Guide

Doctors may prescribe a Muscle Deprogramming Guide to alleviate head, neck, jaw joint, and shoulder pain for patients where bruxism is present. It also reduces the risk of wear and tear of existing healthy dentition; it is highly recommended for those who have crowns, bridges, implants, and dentures to offset the effect of subconscious habits that occur during sleep.
