Title (EN) METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR PREVENTING HEAD INJURY
(FR) PROCEDE ET SYSTEME PERMETTANT DE PREVENIR LES BLESSURES A LA TETE
Abstract:
(EN) A method and system for preventing head injury by providing parallel alignment of a jaw are disclosed. A method of preventing a head injury comprises providing a dental appliance (75) having a left body (76), a right body (77) and a lingual bar (80) engaging the left body (76) and the right body (77); placing the dental appliance (75) over a plurality of teeth of a lower jaw (50) so the lower jaw (50) and a upper jaw (68) are approximately parallel; and absorbing a force applied to the lower jaw (50), wherein the dental appliance (75) absorbs the force applied to the lower jaw (50) while preventing a condyle (57) of a mandible from transferring the force to a temporal bone (53).
(FR) Procédé et système permettant de prévenir les blessures à la tête en fournissant un alignement parallèle des mâchoires. Ledit procédé consiste à disposer d'un appareil dentaire (75) pourvu d'un corps gauche (76), d'un corps droit (77) et d'une barre linguale (80) se trouvant en contact avec le corps gauche (76) et le corps droit (77) et à placer l'appareil dentaire (75) sur plusieurs dents de la mâchoire inférieure (50) de manière que la mâchoire inférieure (50) et la mâchoire supérieure (68) soient approximativement parallèles, l'absorption d'une force appliquée sur la mâchoire inférieure (50) étant ainsi permise. Ledit appareil dentaire (75) absorbe la force appliquée sur la mâchoire inférieure (50) tout en empêchant le condyle (57) de la mandibule de transférer la force à l'os temporal (53).
