                                      THE DROS® CONCEPT

Temporomandibular joint problems – diagnosis and therapy of functional disorders of the masticatory system using the DROS® splint

The DROS® concept is the first causal diagnostic therapy concept in dentistry for the treatment of functional disorders of the masticatory system. The standardised treatment steps enable a shorter duration of treatment, convincing long-term results and considerable cost reductions for patients and health insurers. The DROS® concept is based upon a maxillary occlusal splint, use of which can in many cases considerably reduce the symptoms of TMD within just a few days. Splint therapy forms the basis for long-term stabilisation of correct occlusion (with stable TMJ positioning) through subsequent prosthetic or orthodontic treatments, if these are still necessary.

Many health insurance companies recognise the DROS® concept!

The DROS® concept is applied exclusively by trained, certified dentists / DROS® therapists
