FOSA (Functional Orthopedic Stabilizing Appliance) also known as a TMJ Bite Stabilizer is a mandibular repositioning appliance. It is a therapeutic device used to treat patients with TMD symptoms, severely worn dentition, mobile teeth, bone loss and gum recession due to occlusal trauma and much more. FOSA can give immediate TMJ pain relief. The therapy uses a customized removable hard acrylic appliance that eliminates all occlusal prematurities and interferences to eccentric movements. In other words the appliance will give you an ideal even bite with your jaw joints balanced properly in their sockets.
FOSA Therapy was originally developed by Dr. Thomas Basta and Dr. Jerry Preiner and is taught to dentists at the Foundation for Advanced Continuing Education (F.A.C.E.) in Burlingame, California. The FOSA technique was further refined by Dr. David S. Han, Dr. Yiannis Vlahos and the late Dr. Sacha Dybnis at F.A.C.E.
With a track record of over forty years, FOSA therapy has consistently given positive results for improved dental health. Patients love and appreciate the benefits of FOSA and refer their friends and family to doctors who are trained to prescribe and deliver the mandibular repositioning appliance.
