Dr. Sutter uses the latest advancements in dentistry to treat TMJ disorders, including Disclusion Time Reduction (DTR) Therapy. This is a specialized procedure that uses a T-scan along with EMG to evaluate occlusal forces related to muscle activity.

The underlying goal is to identify contacts between the teeth that are linked to movements that can lead to hyperactive muscles or TMJ symptoms. By identifying how muscles are firing during bite cycles, it allows Dr. Sutter to use guided adjustment treatments to relieve symptoms while also improving the function of the joint.
