The TMJ Foundation promotes a progressive, open-minded learning and listening arena with collaboration of different health professionals.
TMJ Research Foundation was founded to assist clinicians and help in the diagnosis and treatment of patients who suffer from dysfunction of craniocervical and cranio-mandibular systems, by utilization of the most advanced technology available today in dentistry.
Bio-Functional Dynamic Occlusion, BFDO, utilizes a multidisciplinary approach that integrates multiple functional, anatomic and physiologic principles from different occlusal concepts to guarantee a customized and multifaceted treatment for each patient.
Our foundation was built in collaboration with Physicians, Dentists, Physical Therapists, Chiropractors and Holistic Practitioners alike.
For the last 8 years, international students have come over to shadow Dr. Nassery and his work with the Physiologic approach with treatment of his patients.
Sharing the dynamics and the intricacies of Mandibular position and its effect on head and neck is highly recommended for clinicians who treat TMJ.
A treatment anatomically and physiologically dynamic
After years of practice and seeing the value of constantly moving forward with education, Dr. Nassery has attained fellowship status in several dental organizations. He furthered his understanding studying other branches of science as it relates to Posture and the Skeletal System.
This interest in “Whole Body” and related structures has led to adopting a Physiologic approach to his work and Occlusion, in particular, practicing “Bio-Functional Dynamic Occlusion”.
There are many patients out there suffering from Craniomandibular and Craniocervical Dysfunction. Our dental students study groups classes to solve cases and treat patients.
Incorporating the most advanced technologies available today to this field and to help perpetuate this knowledge to other clinicians who may be interested in the field.
Clinicians who care to share their data with the foundation are encouraged to join as a research associate and get involved with this developing field through joined learning.
