Title (EN) ORTHODONTIC DISCOMFORT REDUCTION USING HIGH FREQUENCY STIMULATION
(FR) RÉDUCTION DE L'INCONFORT ORTHODONTIQUE FAISANT APPEL À UNE STIMULATION HAUTE FRÉQUENCE
Abstract:
(EN) A method and device for reducing oral discomfort in a mouth of a user using high frequency vibration (HFV) includes placing a proximal end of a mouthpiece intraorally into vibrational contact with a dentition of the user, activating a vibration unit so as to deliver vibration at a frequency higher than about 80 Hz to the dentition of the user, and removing the vibration unit after about 5 minutes, wherein oral discomfort is reduced compared to a time before activating the vibration unit.
(FR) Cette invention concerne un procédé et un dispositif permettant de réduire l'inconfort buccal d'un utilisateur à l'aide d'une vibration haute fréquence (HFV) qui comprend le positionnement de l'extrémité proximale d'un embout intra-buccal en contact vibratoire avec la dentition de l'utilisateur, l'activation d'une unité de vibration de façon à communiquer une vibration à une fréquence supérieure à environ 80 Hz à la dentition de l'utilisateur, et le retrait de ladite unité de vibration après environ 5 minutes, ce qui permet de réduire l'inconfort buccal comparativement à la période antérieure à l'activation de l'unité de vibration.
