Evidence Base


The principles surrounding in-ear devices for the treatment of jaw related pain have existed since the late 1990’s, with the evidence base supporting their use growing significantly over the past decade.

We have spent the last two years researching and developing an effective, comfortable and safe device that has real life—in some case transformational—results for TMD sufferers.


In 2012, early devices were proven to reduce jaw pain by 46% at month one and 58% by month three. The clear benefit to this was that the devices could be worn day and night rather than just 6-8 hours, which is a common wear time for alternative splints. In this comparative study, the in-ear devices reduced pain and discomfort more effectively than any other device.

Since this initial study, there have been numerous others, all providing reproducible data proving efficacy of in-ear devices in treating symptoms of TMD and all showing that the devices are superior to other alternative methods, particularly in patients who engage in daytime para-functional habits (awake clenching/grinding).


We have greatly improved on the concept of the in-ear TMD treatment device with JawGuard. Making changes to the design to ensure that the active part of the device is effective and comfortable has enabled us to achieve better results than ever before, helping patient after patient receive relief from jaw pain and other associated problems.
