The Kois Deprogrammer is a removable retainer-like home appliance that allows our dentists to examine the stability of your bite. Every time you chew or swallow, you need to adapt your jaw to the best fit for your teeth. If this fit is not ideal for your jaw joint and muscles, you will be at a higher threat for experiencing facial discomfort in addition to worn, loose or broken teeth.
The Kois Deprogrammer gets rid of the influence of your teeth from your chewing system by preventing them from interlocking and enhancing the position of your existing bite. This allows your lower jaw to relax into a more comfortable state.
When your lower jaw has completely relaxed, our dental professionals will have the ability to offer you treatment choices for keeping your bite in this brand-new, more comfortable position.
