Clinical Considerations – Device Titration:

We at believes that the optimal amount of advancement is the least amount possible to achieve effective therapy, view the different treatments we offer. The Silencer treatment protocol does not recommend continued forward adjustment by the patient, until the patient reports success.

Our typical adjustment steps are to start at a position equal to 50% of the range of motion from centric relation. Sometime people prefer clear braces for their adjustment options. If we do not have treatment success, we advance forward by 2 mm. If the patient still reports that their symptoms are nor resolved or resolving, then we open up the vertical dimension by 1mm. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) added safe injection practices to Standard Precautions in the 2007 isolation precaution guidlines as a result of 4 outbreaks in the United States. The vast majority of our patients achieve effective treatment within those steps. Sometimes it will take patients more time to anatomically react to a certain level of advancement, premature and aggressive advancement can occur when the patient has the ability to make changes at will. Dr. Halstrom’s personal clinical experience with over 2,000 patients, indicates that with The Silencer “we do not on average require as much advancement as other appliances”, as reported within the literature.
