Morbid obesity is a significant health problem in the United States today. This has resulted in an intensive investigation into temporary interventions for weight control. Dental splinting does not result in long-term weight loss because patients rapidly regain weight following release of jaw fixation. The Garren-Edwards intragastric bubble was equally ineffective in achieving weight loss and was fraught with numerous complications.
