LIMA, Daísa Gouvêa de et al. Stabilization splints in patients with Temporomandibular Disorders: report of two cases. Rev. Bras. Odontol. [online]. 2016, vol.73, n.3, pp. 261-264. ISSN 1984-3747.

Objective: To present the cases of two patients with temporomandibular disorders with significant occlusal instability. Case reports: case 1 was a 16-year-old partially dentulous female patient. Case 2 was a 60-year-old female patient with prostheses. Both patients, when on examination, showed a large difference in maximum intercuspation and centric relation. The proposed treatment for both cases was the use of rigid temporomandibular dysfunction appliances. Conclusion: The rigid temporomandibular dysfunction appliance showed good results, with total remission of the symptoms in both cases.
