has anyone tried the therabite system
You will find the Therabite useful to prevent and limit restricted mouth opening (trismus) that can occur after radiotherapy/surgery that affects the jaw muscles. Several of my patients used it. Do read our past discussions involving Therabite. It is also made for the Asian market as "Orabite" but will need to be ordered from abroad but is cheaper (if you are unable to get the Therabite prescribed on the NHS). You will need to contact the company for details. Hope that helps.

I've tried it and found it very helpful especially just before going to the dentist. Takes a lot of determination. My problem is I've had mine for about ten years and feel I need a new one or refurbishment of it, but my doctor won't prescribe and neither will my dentist. Regards
