1) Place the frontmost part of the clamp between the front teeth - or as instructed by your therapist
– on top of the bite protection pads.
2) Slowly squeeze the clamp and let it slowly open the mouth while keeping the jaw muscles relaxed. Let the mouth slowly open into a position where your jaw muscles start tightening but don´t hurt.
3) Hold for 25 seconds.
4) Close the mouth by slowly relaxing the hand pressure on the clip. Remember to keep the jaw muscles relaxed during the whole exercise.
5) Rest for 25 seconds.
Repeat the exercise 6-10 times, 3 times a day.
As the training progresses the number of exercises and amount of pressure may gradually and cautiously be increased. Pay attention to what feels good for you.
Remember: Overstretching can be harmful!
To optimize your treatment/training, we advise you to first consult an oral specialist.
