OraStretch press Instructions


The OraStretch press is a jaw motion rehab system, which prevent and treat trismus, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, and facial trauma; and are used for rehabilitation of the jaw after surgery. Jaw motion rehab systems use passive motion to mobilize the joint and stretch the tissues of the jaw and face.

Instructions for Therapy:

• Insert mouthpieces between the teeth.
• Squeeze the handle and hold to press the mouth and jaw open
• Release and pause.
• Repeat squeeze and release as instructed in the user’s protocol.
• To end: Remove, rinse mouthpieces and allow to dry.

General Suggestions:
• Relax, and don’t stretch too hard. Overstretching can tear or damage tissue. Stretch slow and easy.
• Stop immediately and contact your doctor if you experience any sharp pain during use.
• Apply the pads one hour before use to set the adhesive.
• Use it every day. Your recover depends on your commitment to rehabilitation.
