DTR treatment utilizes the T-Scan in conjunction with an EMG (muscle tester) to evaluate and refine the forces on your teeth and muscle activity during chewing and excursive movements — biting is far more accurate than traditional blue marking paper that may leave your filling uneven or give you a high bite. The goal of treatment is to improve the way back teeth disengage during excursive movements in effect decreasing muscle activity in real-time.
The treatment phase of DTR Therapy requires computer-guided adjustments with a goal to reduce excessive posterior periodontal ligament compressions (which triggers muscle hyperactivity), the desired result is to have the muscles return to baseline activity, reducing lactic acid production and myalgic pain.
