You are correct, Anterior repositioning splint is indicated for part time use.

Also try to identify & correct Risk factor for the TMD like bruxism, trauma, stress, occlusion and other parafunctionl habit etc.

To help evaluate the health of the TMJ, a complete medical and dental history must be taken, including the recording of any trauma such as accidents, injuries or general anesthetics. Measurement of the dysfunctional muscle activity and abnormal jaw movements will be achieved using the latest in computerized diagnostic modalites including EMG.
