New oral splint that can reduce Tourette syndrome tics

Researchers at Osaka University have developed a removable dental appliance that can reduce tics in both children and adults with Tourette syndrome.

Tourette syndrome is a neurological disorder characterised by vocal and motor tics, which can contribute to anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem.

The ability to reduce tics could positively impact the everyday lives of individuals with Tourette syndrome. While there is no cure for Tourette syndrome, there are several available options to treat severe tics.

These include behavioural, pharmacological and more intrusive surgical interventions; however, the efficacy of these treatments can vary and patients still frequently suffer from physical, mental, and social disabilities.
