Dr Robert Kersteins’ TMJ Treatment Works Without TMJ Appliances

Dr. Robert Kerstein of Boston, MA, uses no mouthguards or appliances to treat TMJ problems. He hasn’t used them for over 28 years, since he began researching TMJ with the T-Scan III Occlusal Computer in 1984.

His Computer-guided TMJ Treatment with the T-Scan III Computerized Occlusal Analysis System has been shown in numerous published studies since 1991, to be a much faster, and a more effective, and permanent TMJ Treatment, than any Mouthguard or Appliance-based TMJ Treatment.

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