DTR Summit: The Non-Appliance Approach to Treating Occluso-Muscle Disorders - October

October 2 – 3, 2020
Las Vegas, NV

Dr. Kerstein will host the Disclusion Time Reduction Summit in Las Vegas, NV.  DTR Therapy uses the T-Scan™ digital occlusal analysis system to measure the impact of excursive movements on the occlusal plane. The goal is to identify contacts that may be overly engaging during excursive movements, a problem that can lead to hyperactive muscles, breakage, and TMD symptoms. The clinician evaluates the time it takes for posterior teeth to disengage during excursive movements and correlates the occlusal data to muscle activity in real time.

Course Overview

This course will teach you a minimally invasive way to diagnose and treat patients experiencing TMD signs and symptoms through managing occlusion. Learn from two of the leaders in Disclusion Time Reduction (DTR) Therapy, Dr Robert Kerstein and Dr Ben Sutter, through lectures, live patient treatment, and hands-on workshops.

  • Define what Disclusion Time Reduction (DTR) Therapy is and the science and research behind it
  • Evaluate and diagnose clinical DTR cases
  • Gain skills and interpreting data with hands-on clinical demonstrations for occlusal analysis
  • Demonstrate what you learn to live patient treatment
