LVI Neuromuscular Orthotics

Your neuromuscular orthotic will be fabricated and coronoplastied by a technician that has completed all of the Core 1-7 courses, and all of the Lab courses at LVI, as well as every IAPA meeting ever held. Also overseeing the project is the first and only LVI Mastership recipient for technicians in the world, Bob Clark, CDT LVIM.

The teachings of Bill and Heidi Dickerson along with many of the world’s renowned masters in the neuromuscular field will be utilized in the fabrication of your fixed or removable Orthotic made by Williams Dental Laboratory. Our case-specific (LVIM) mastership protocol will be employed in total case management as well as bite management during the coronoplasty phase to ensure very minimal occlusal adjustments. The final coronoplasty is completed under a 20X microscope. A full understanding of where the mandible needs to go during the diagnostic phase of orthotic therapy is critical. Once your patients orthotic are seated, the mandible will have a cleared path allowing uninhibited forward mandibular progression.

We understand and appreciate the clinical time involved to take a proper TENS or MYObite. Your efforts will not be wasted, as we will use all of the neuromuscular training we have to ensure that your patient will be comfortable. Our highly trained Williams Dental Lab team is always available to assist in case planning as well as treatment support . Our experience-based recommendations have helped hundreds of neuromuscular dentists. If we see something that can be done on the clinical side to help enhance the patient’s experience or make the process more efficient, you will receive a call and further communication. We are blessed to work with some of the most experienced and busiest neuromuscular clinicians worldwide. After making thousands of neuromuscular anatomic, semi anatomic, flat plane and Gerber “pull forward” orthotics we have encountered some very unique occlusal schemes and know how to handle even the most complicated orthotic designs. Our goal is total patient satisfaction through an “easy to wear and not over contoured or bulky design” which will result in a happy patient willing to accept further treatment, or with acceptance of further treatment. Our new “lingual-less” design is highly praised and widely desired!  Doing the high volume of neuromuscular orthotics that we do, we have learned that patients driven by pain need to receive their orthotic appliance quickly. We have dialed in our LVIM lab protocols to handle your orthotic fabrication as quick as a same day “in and out ” service. Williams Dental Lab provides this service as an added value for our clients at no additional fee. If you have an orthotic that needs to be expedited for your pain patient please email bob@williamsdentallab.com or call us today at 800-713.5390.

WHAT DO WE NEED TO FABRICATE AN ORTHOTIC FOR YOU?

  • Stone Casts or PVS impressions
  • Bite registration, either MYO or TENS
  • Completed Rx form Download Here
  • Copy of K7 scans, Scan 8 (optional)
All models received are duplicated. The completed Orthotic and MYO or TENS bite registration is returned with original casts. A separate Calibrated LVI Stratos articulator will be used on every orthotic. Once the case is articulated, it does not leave that Stratos until fabrication is completed. We want to enhance the excitement your patients experience in neuromuscular dentistry.

Our neuromuscular trained technicians have the privilege of case planning and fabricating magnificent restorations to LVI mastership protocols.

Williams Dental Lab provides a neuromuscular, metal based orthotic with lab processed composite overlay. This metal based orthotic will satisfy the needs of the patient by providing a very aesthetic option that is comfortable and easy to clean. This option also satisfies the needs of our clients that are not comfortable moving their clients into a fixed orthotic option.
