Therabite

Finally I got my own therabite. Last year I was told my jaw was so bad that I had arthritis and may need operation and etc. The doctors here were negative. Then they told me to see the specialist in the other city. I visited him in Dec. It turned out that the doctors were wrong. This specialist told me I was born this way (I had birth defect) so it is a stable condition. It is friction, not arthritis.
He recommended that I get this Therabite device and exercise my mouth. My mouth is smaller because the muscle is weaker due to the defected bone. The device is made in Sweden and I got it by mail.

I was told by my therapist that this should help. I need to do it 3 times a day. Now I can only open my mouth up to 20mm.
