Cerezen insert for relief of TMJ pain.

A new solution for TMJD pain relief
The new FDA-cleared Cerezen device is now available in the UK and Ireland as a safe and effective aid to reducing the pain associated with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder and associated symptoms such as grinding of teeth and headaches.
The comfortable device comprises two custom-made, removable hollow ear canal inserts – a unique new way to treat the disorder. The treatment provides pain reduction and, unlike a bite-splint, can be worn all day and night.
