If you have had an adverse reaction to any medications and/or devices, such as splints, Mitek anchors, and other TMJ implants, it’s important that you report this problem to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). As a consumer, it is important that you realize you have a responsibility to notify not only your doctor, but the FDA as well. Don’t assume others will do the reporting for you. The FDA relies on both physicians and patients to report problems and has a reporting tool in place called MedWatch: The FDA Safety Information and Adverse Event Reporting Program. We encourage you to view the brief video which explains the basics about using the FDA MedWatch reporting system.
