  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

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:

  • Nightguards
  • Mouthguards
  • Oral appliances
  • NTIs
  • TENS deprogramming
