Dr. Robert Kerstein | Annual Conference 2019

Disclusion Time Reduction (DTR) Therapy is a highly precise, occlusal
adjustment procedure that identifies and treats the contacts that cause the
hyperactive muscles and the associated chronic muscular symptoms seen in
TMD patients. This lecture will detail that shortening the Disclusion Time
to less than 0.5 seconds per excursion using the T-Scan/BioEMG guided
time-based occlusal adjustments, many common chronic TMD symptoms can be
successfully treated, without requiring a patient to wear a splint or bruxism
appliance. This presentation will also highlight the most recently published
evidence that Disclusion Time Reduction (DTR) stops cold tooth hypersensitivity,
lessens internal TMJ soft tissue structural damage, and markedly improves
emotional depression that accompanies living with chronic painful TMD
symptoms.
