The Kois Deprogrammer is a removable retainer-like appliance used by Dr. Banik to evaluate the stability of your bite. The Kois Deprogrammer helps adjust your jaw and bite to reduce your risk of facial pain and worn, broken, or loose teeth. Its purpose is to remove the influence of your teeth from your chewing system by preventing them from interlocking and reinforcing the position of your existing bite. This allows your lower jaw to relax into a more comfortable position. Once your bite has adjusted to a new position, Dr. Banik will guide you to options for maintaining your bite in its new, more comfortable position. Remember to wear your Kois Deprogrammer to all of your dental appointments.
