Go Back To Grinding/Jaw Pain

Cerezen Overview

Cerezen is a revolutionary medical device that effectively treats jaw pain and symptoms associated with teeth grinding and clenching. These conditions are collectively known as Temporomandibular Disorders or TMD.

The two custom-made, 3D printed hollow inserts sit in each ear canal; the nearest access point to the temporomandibular joint. While the pain relief Cerezen provides is profound, the inserts themselves are discrete and almost invisible. With small tabs for easy insertion and removal, they’re comfortable to wear because they’re custom made only for you.

Symptoms of TMD include:
• Teeth grinding or jaw clenching
• Pain in the chewing muscles and /or jaw point soreness
• Radiating pain in the face, jaw or neck.
• Jaw muscle pain or stiffness
• Aching pain in and around ears.
• Limited movement or locking jaw
• Painful jaw clicking or popping when opening or closing the mouth
• Headaches or migraines
• A change in the way the upper and lower teeth fit together

3 easy steps to relief from TMD
1. Talk to your dentist about your symptoms and whether Cerezen is right for you.
2. Get impressions of your ear canals from our audiologist
3. Receive 3D printed, custom-made devices after approximately two weeks. Your dentist will show you how comfortable and easy they are to wear.

Additional Information

Teeth grinding and jaw pain explained

Excessive teeth grinding or jaw clenching – also called bruxism – can damage the teeth and cause a number of different painful symptoms. Collectively, these are often referred to as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD)

Science behind Cerezen

When you move your jaw, your ear canal also opens and closes. As the ear canal is so close to the temporomandibular joint (TMD), it is the perfect place to target the source of your symptoms.
When your customised Cerezen devices are inserted into the ear canal, they retain the shape of your ear canal in the open jaw position because they are made from a 3D printed rigid material. They effectively encourage the jaw to return to an “open bite” position.
The result is a reduction in grinding, clenching and the amount of pain you experience.

Will it work?

Results from clinical studies show that Cerezen can provide significant relief from TMD pain. It should however be noted that TMD pain (and indeed pain in general) can be complicated and a number of different factors may be contributing. Whilst we will always do what we can give the best chance of the pain improving, it is impossible to ‘guarantee’ that the pain will disappear and further treatment or referral may be required.

Are there any risks?

No. A study conducted showed that none of the patients were found to have had any negative effects from the treatment, such as ear damage, allergic reactions, swelling or changes to the mouth, ear or jaw at any follow-up visits. There were also no reports of reduced hearing.
