Disclusion Time Reduction (DTR) Therapy is a splintless TMD therapy using fundamental concepts of occlusion. This is true- but it is much more than that!

Periodontal, orthodontics, cosmetic dentistry, implants, and fixed and removable prosthodontics from a single crown to a full mouth reconstruction- ALL are impacted by occlusion. The occlusion also greatly impacts tooth sensitivity.

DTR therapy is a specialized dental treatment procedure that requires the use of T-Scan™ in tandem with an EMG link to evaluate occlusal forces in relation to muscle activity. DTR therapy uses T-Scan™ digital occlusal analysis data to measure the impact of excursive movements, a problem that can lead to hyperactive muscles, breakage, and TMD symptoms. The clinician evaluates the time it takes for posterior teeth to disengage during excursive movements and correlates the occlusal data to muscle activity in real time.
