Our Dentist Strives To Help Patients Live TMJ Pain-Free Lives Welcome to the Office of Keith G. Lorio, DDS in Baton Rouge, LA

We especially seek to help those who have searched for a variety of dental and medical solutions, yet have limited to no resolution of their symptoms

Practicing dentistry since 1993, Dr. Lorio is known for his compassionate care and effective solutions when treating TMJ disorders (TMD). A native of Baton Rouge, he's proud to serve people in his community and make a meaningful difference in their lives.

TMJ Masterclass Training

Dr. Lorio completed the eight-level Occlusion Connections (OC) Gneuromuscular (GNM) Masterclass curriculum as well as related training in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics.

The courses provide clinical insights on diagnosing and treating TMJ disorders, with several solutions not covered in modern dental curriculum.

What This Means for TMJ Patients

Dr. Lorio brings a science-backed approach to TMJ treatment that evaluates the jaw's structure as well as the interconnected muscles and nerves surrounding the joint.

In order to try helping you relieve your TMJ symptoms, his goal is to get to the source of your jaw dysfunction.  Therefore, he strives to re-establish physiologic stability.

Dr. Lorio is one of only 20 dentists in the United States who've completed the OC GNM Masterclass curriculum for TMJ disorder treatment.

He is also the only dentist in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee with this distinction for treating TMJ problems. Dr. Lorio has been a TMJ disorder resource for many patients and doctors in the region.

I can’t thank Dr. Lorio enough for how he has changed my quality of life. I went in with really bad tmj pain after being told by a doctor that it wasn’t anything serious and to continue taking Tylenol for the pain. I was taking two Tylenol every 4 hours it seemed! Thankfully once I started my appointments and received my mouth orthotic I felt immediate relief! Dr. Lorio is very knowledgeable and his attention to detail is commendable. It just feels like thank you isn’t enough but Thank you Thank you Thank you!!

TMJ Treatment

If you suffer from jaw pain, headaches, and earaches due to a TMJ disorder, you're not alone. A dysfunction of the jaw joint can lead to difficulties while speaking, eating, and yawning. Fortunately, there are options for pain relief and improved jaw function.

Using advanced diagnostic equipment, Dr. Lorio will assess the jaw joint as well as the sounds made while the jaw is in motion. Thanks to his Advanced Masterclass Continuum Training, Dr. Lorio can then treat complicated issues that affect the jaw joint and its surrounding tissues.
