The temporomandibular joints (TMJ) connect the jawbone to the skull. These joints are used for talking, chewing, swallowing, and yawning. Any issues with the jaw joint and the associated muscles are known as TMJ disorders. If you have any of the following symptoms, Dr. Bethaney B. Brenner may be able to treat your TMJ issues:
Dr. Bethaney B. Brenner uses DTR (Disclusion Time Reduction) to treat TMJ disorders (see our video below). Regardless of the cause, it is possible to treat these disorders 90% of the time. There are 30 years of published research definitively showing that DTR is the most effective treatment option available today. The primary goal of TMJ therapy is to return the jaw to it proper function, thereby eliminating the related symptoms. In some case, combinations of therapies are needed.
