Restorative Physiological Treatment (RPT)
One of the primary goals of successful restorative physiological treatment is to establish a physiologic balance that facilitates the maintenance of Temporomandibular Joint health.
What is Restorative Physiological Treatment (RPT)?
Restorative Physiologic Treatment (RPT) is the comprehensive evaluation and treatment of both phase I and phase II temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). TMD therapy is done in phases.
TMD therapy is done in phases:
- Phase 1
Establish the patients Physiologic rest position which is maintained via the custom orthotic fabrication.
- Phase 2
Establish cranial balance and dental balance/occlusion with necessary orthodontics, crowns or both. As shown in the patient below, she had both ortho and crowns. Once the patients cranial and cervical rest position were neuromuscularly determined/balanced, then the occlusion was restored to match.
