Title: ELECTRONIC DATA TRANSMISSION DEVICE FOR PRESSURE SPLINTS IN PATIENTS WITH BRUXISM
Abstract:
The invention is intended to be implanted in patients with bruxism in order to produce a vibratory stimulus which makes it possible to alert the patients to the pathological habit thereof in order to correct this habit. For this purpose, the invention comprises a transmitter situated on the actual splint associated with the patient's teeth and a receiver, with the special feature that the transmitter is connected to sensors which detect the biting pressure between the upper and lower teeth of the actual patient. The transmitter is connected to an electrical power supply battery and to a vibrator or any other device for generating stimuli.
