DTR 85% Effective in Treating TMJ Pain

Imagine – TMJ Pain Cured 85% of the Time!

With the help of DTR, Disclusion Time Reduction, patients who suffer from painful TMJ disorders are living comfortably again.

Disclusion Time Reduction (DTR)

DTR is a precise system to accurately balance the way the teeth work while monitoring muscle physiology, to reduce muscle tension and get people feeling better.

Disclusion Time Reduction Therapy uses 2 different technologies that work together.  Most of the treatment is sanding off small amounts of the enamel on multiple teeth, but sometimes treatment includes adding tooth-colored fillings materials to build up other teeth.

Pressure Analyzation

The T-Scan – a pressure measuring system,  scans the tooth contacts in microseconds, measuring the timings of how the teeth fit when chewing, calculating the forces and balance.

We then use the computer to guide the changes. At the same time, we monitor the muscles of the face and temples with a BioEMG. EMG measures muscle activity – how hard the muscles are working, or if they are resting.  When the teeth come into balance, the muscles show signs of relaxation, and we know we have achieved the desired result.  Because timing is critical, measurement technology is the only way to monitor physiologic success.

Long Lasting, Effective Treatment for TMJ

Often, patients can feel the muscles start to relax before they leave the office! Usually complete therapy takes 2 – 4 visits over a 4 – 6 week treatment period.

DTR is evidence based — and it works!
