The Gelb appliance, tailored for either the upper or lower teeth, provides a strategic surface for dentists to dictate the alignment of opposing teeth. This device not only fine-tunes jaw positioning but also mitigates forces on the temporomandibular joints, relaxes facial muscles, and safeguards natural teeth from the detrimental effects of grinding forces.
