Abstract

This is a case report of a 71-year-old female with pain in the right TMJ, who was also suffering from Parkinson's Disease and was treated using a new intraoral occlusal appliance. The new appliance was designed to limit excessive mandibular excursion to the right side by restricting the mediotrusive movement of the left coronoid process. The appliance significantly suppressed involuntary mandibular excursion.
