The EMA (Elastic Mandibular Advancement) appliance is a remarkable solution designed to enhance TMJ comfort and provide effective treatment for various dental conditions. It consists of upper and lower custom pressure-molded trays connected by flexible elastic bands.
One of the unique features of the EMA appliance is its customization. The flexible elastic bands come in different lengths and offer various degrees of mandibular advancement and lateral movement. This means that the parameters can be tailored for each patient, ensuring optimum results.
With the ability to easily change the elastic bands, dentists can quickly find the right set that delivers unsurpassed lateral movement and overall TMJ comfort for their patients.
