Treatment Without TMJ Appliances
Back Bay Dental Care’s Dr. Robert Kerstein treats TMJ without using TMJ appliances. He hasn’t used them since he began researching TMJ with the T-Scan III Occlusal Computer in 1984.
Computer guided, appliance-free, TMJ treatment has been shown to be much faster, and a more effective, and permanent TMJ treatment, than any mouthguard or appliance-based TMJ treatment.
Dr Kerstein uses Digital Occlusal (Tooth) Contact Force and Time data to correct a TMJ patients’ bite so precisely, that most patients do not even wear a nighttime sleep appliance for clenching or bruxing of their teeth.
To have rapid significant symptom resolution, most TMJ patients rarely need:
- Oral appliances
- TENS deprogramming
