Definition and working mechanism of the DROS® splint

Diagnostic | Diagnostics

Relaxing | The relaxation phase works primarily to relax myogenic structures in the masticatory system

Orientating | Orientation phase enables realignment of the mandible (lower jaw)

Stabilising occlusal splint | Stabilisation phase with the therapeutic goal of a stable condylar position (SCP)

Phase I                                                               Phase II

Therapy is done in 2 phases:

1. Relaxation phase (DROS® I splint )
2. Orientation and stabilisation phase (DROS® II splint)
