Bionix TruGuard - Customizable Tongue and Jaw Positioning Aid
Bionix TruGuard is an easy-to-use, customizable tongue and jaw positioning aid that provides stability and protection in the treatment of head and neck cancers. TruGuard also removes the issues caused by pitching even if there is patient weight variance.
Problem:Backscatter caused by radiation hitting dental work can result in damage to healthy oral tissues. Patients are also often fitted with an awkward “homemade” device or sent to a prosthodontist which can be costly and time consuming.
Solution:TruGuard helps to protect the oral cavity from backscatter radiation by sparing surrounding soft tissue and it eliminates the need for an expensive prosthodontic while producing a consistent, reliable setup. TruGuard offers a customizable dental tray to match patient anatomy while indexing to the mask for stability.
Result:TruGuard protects healthy, soft tissue and indexes both the top and bottom jaws of the patient, resulting in the patient pitching less under the mask.
