Functional Dentistry is
Fulfilling Dentistry

Become a TMJ Relax® provider to change the lives of
patients suffering with TMJ disorder—
and give your dental practice a competitive edge.


A medical device for a medical problem

At the heart of the TMJ Relax® system is a prescription medical device.

That means it’s different from occlusal guards or orthotics made by
dental labs.

Using a unique, patent-pending design algorithm and production protocol, TMJ Relax® is the first device of its kind cleared by the FDA for the treatment of headaches, muscle tension, and bruxism associated with temporomandibular joint disorder.

It’s medicine meets dentistry—the combo this disorder needs for
effective relief.

A better treatment for the millions of patients in limbo

  • It’s time to raise the standard of care for the long line of patients in pain.
  • As an expert in oral health and head/neck function, it can all start with you.

The only solution to address the real problem behind TMJD

What makes TMJ Relax different from any treatments you’re already using?

It’s a prescription medical device that allows the mandibular movements to retrain into a less symptomatic position—for lasting relief.

Occlusal guards that dentists make record the bite in centric occlusion. That replicates the same cause of the problem: incorrect mandibular position.

Same position, Same symptoms.

TMJ Relax® uses the patent-pending Rightbite™ treatment program to take the bite in a disoccluded position, to establish a better mandibular position to allow the muscles to heal.

Better position, Better results.

A win for patients—and for you

While you’re changing lives with TMJ Relax, the system will be boosting your business.

  • Less chair time

    TMJ Relax is rooted in technology that reduces your manual workload. By the time you get to the chair, you’ve only got tweaks to make.

  • Fewer costly hiccups

    Our streamlined system works the same on every patient, eliminating guesswork or the chance of making a mistake.

  • Higher revenue

    With its high rate of efficacy, TMJ Relax is more valuable for the patient—and is priced accordingly. Plus, it’s easy to take on a high volume of patients.

  • More satisfied patients

    With TMJ Relax you can treat patients better and more often. Don’t be surprised to see an influx of referrals as a result.

Developed by a dentist, for dentists

TMJ Relax® was developed by Dr. Charles Sutera, a dentist who has treated over 10,000 patients with TMJ disorder—including some of the most complex cases in the country. Tired of seeing patients at their wit’s end with chronic, unsolved pain, he set out to create an effective treatment that would get more people the relief they deserve.

Dr. Sutera is committed to improving the fulfilment and practice success of general practitioners. He studied dentistry at Tufts School of Dental Medicine and has invested heavily in continuing education—including the 12th Annual TMD and OFP Mini Residency Program in June 2017 with Dr. Jeffrey Okeson. Outside of clinical practice, he is highly active in the field of healthcare and serves as a thought leader, published journalist, a patented healthcare product developer, and a dental expert witness for law firms across the country.

A big believer that dentists are the best healthcare practitioners to treat TMJD, Dr. Sutera can’t wait to welcome you into the growing TMJ Relax community of providers.

A repeatable process for every patient

You’ll love the simplicity of our step-by-step system that’s the same for everyone, 
backed by decades of TMJ efficacy research.


TMJ Relax® starts with a comprehensive patient exam to confirm their symptoms are likely stemming from their TMJ. If they’re a candidate, you can move forward with prescribing TMJ Relax.

Scan or take a traditional impression

You’ll scan the patient’s maxilla, mandible, and bite using our Rightbite™ dentistry services program—then send the images electronically to our lab with one click.


We design and manufacture a custom orthotic device and deliver it to your office. The patient will come back for a fitting, where you’ll fine-tune the device to get it just right.

Follow Up

You’ll meet with the patient a few more times at your discretion over the course of 6 months, to check the progress of their bite position and make manual adjustments to the device as needed.

These questions are
probably on your mind…

Existing TMJ disorder treatments are historically time-consuming, laborious, and ineffective. If they were so great, we wouldn’t have so many people suffering, right? The problem is our industry has traditionally treated the symptoms of the condition, rather than the cause, with superficial solutions like mouthguards. Not to mention, how much were you really educated about TMJ disorder in school? TMJ Relax will advance your knowledge of how this complex area of the human body works, and give you a simple, repeatable, effective system for treating the root cause of most patients’ issues.

Sure, you could—but the resulting appliance will be different from lab to lab. You don’t quite know what you’re going to get. TMJ Relax is a medical device that consistently incorporates specific active features every time. There’s no trial-and-error or guesswork involved, so you always get an appliance and your patients can trust.

Because TMJ Relax actually encourages the mandible into a more optimal position, and gets adjusted by you for best results over time, the patient can experience lasting relief. It’s not the band-aid solution that a mouthguard is. This active retraining of mandibular movements makes TMJ Relax highly effective at stabilizing symptoms—and allows you to rule out other contributing factors. Of course, TMJ disorder is complex and people are complex. TMJ Relax doesn’t solve every problem, but it does reduce tmj tension down to a manageable level in a large percentage of cases.

Our system is simple, on purpose. It’s as easy as diagnose, scan, fit, and adjust. We’ve gotten it down to such a science—which you’ll learn in our training program—that the appointments should only take you 15 minutes. TMJ Relax gives you a consistent, repeatable system so there’s no time-wasting guesswork involved. Use the time savings to fit in more patients—or head home early.

Don’t worry, the tech behind our system isn’t here to replace you. We’re founded by a practicing dentist, after all.

TMJ Relax will be your best assistant. (Every Batman needs a Robin.) It’s here to save you time and guesswork.

This treatment couldn’t happen without you because there are always minor discrepancies during the bite process that require fine tuning by a dentist at delivery, and as the patient’s mandibular position relaxes over the first 6 months. Your job is safe with us.

TMJ Relax raises the value of your treatment offering through its higher price point and the higher volume of patients you can bring in. Since it’s a more effective service for patients, it’s priced above basic treatments. And while there are more follow-ups than say, a prescribed basic mouthguard, you’re compensated for these. Our streamlined system also allows you to fit a lot of patients into your schedule. Overall, the patients get better treatment, and you earn more in your practice. It’s a win-win.

TMJ Relax prescriptions are billed fee-for-service to patients directly by dental practices typically under CPT code 21299. Providers should select a patient fee depending on case complexity and geography in the range of $1649 to $2499.

The patient fee is inclusive of followups. Some patients may submit the fee and a narrative to their medical insurance for potential reimbursement.

Our lab fee is $399. Most providers deliver only one orthopedic device to treat their patients but the fee also includes warranty of up to a total of three devices. If it breaks under normal use or requires a bite reset, it’s on us for a year.

The time for better TMJ treatment is now

The stats are telling.

The prevalence of TMJ disorder has never been higher and the compound annual growth rate of the temporomandibular industry is expected to grow at 4.18% between now and 2027.4
