Initial Consultation

Your initial visit is our opportunity to meet you, discuss your particular concerns and suggest a personalized treatment strategy.  Our team will outline the specific approaches, technologies and supplements that best fit your personal needs and goals.



The position of the tongue contributes to many functions within the mouth and can result, when incorrectly aligned, in head, neck and facial pain, postural difficulties and other conditions.  Treatments and surgical options are available to reverse and correct these conditions.


The causes of chronic migraines, tension headaches, vertigo, tinnitus, TMJ/TMD, and face, jaw, and neck pain may be interconnected. Unbalanced forces in your mouth affect muscles in all these areas, leading to changes in chemical and nerve reactions leading to chronic pain.  Other  symptoms often result from accidents, head trauma, bad posture, or other underlying conditions.  Annually, 45 million Americans have occassional or recurring incidences of  head pain.  The TruDenta System offers a dental headache treatment strategy that is drug-free, needle-free, pain-free and proven to relieve chronic headache pain.



Disclusion Time Reduction Therapy  was developed by pioneer Dr. Robert Kerstein who combined T-scan computer bite analysis with EMG.  DTR technology  provides a precise measurement of pressure and time on the teeth.  Both factors trigger  the pain center of the brain and create hypermuscle activity, causing head, neck, and facial pain, as well as damage to jaw joints. DTR  provides a simple, comprehensive and conservative treatment strategy that brings complete and lasting results. 


T-scan and EMG technologies are the primary methods used to create a  real-time reproducible picture of each patient's individual bite and muscle activity.  Joint vibration analysis and digital X-rays are also utilized to  effectively screen for TMJ dysfunction and other jaw joint issues.  Treament options range from Disclusion Time Reduction (DTR), to splint therapy, and physical therapy; utilitizng, laser ultrasound, microcurrent, and massage.  Alternatives therapies such as homeopathy, herbs and supplements are also employed as part of the overall treatment strategy.  Pain-reducing agents, muscle relaxants and anti-inflammatory supplements may also be part of a patient's individual treatment strategy.

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common type of sleep dysfunction. It occurs because of a physical blockage involving the collapse of the  soft tissues at the  back of the throat.   Central sleep apnea (CSA) is less common.  Breathing stops when muscles involved in the process do not receive critical signals from the brain.  Some people suffer from "mixed" or "complex" sleep apnea, which is a combination of both the obstructive and central brain signal conditions. Patients are evaluated to determine their individual dysfunction and an tailor-made treatment strategy is developed to correct their condition.

Dr. Sprinkle talks about tongue-ties, mercury free dentistry, no root canals and much more.



"I am pain-free after four years of intermittent bouts of electric-like jolts of lightning to the left side of my face."

"The pain was gone and I could feel a remarkable difference in my breathing. The first night I was able to sleep without the CPAP and woke up feeling great."

"My life changed in three hours. To realize the relief I have experienced you must understand the discomfort I lived with, called Reflex Sympathic Dysthropy (or RSD)"

     Other than the tongue-tie surgery, this procedure is revolutionary.   The article below is a must read.  It is

available in English and Spanish.




      Jarrod is a sixteen year old young man.   When I first met him, he had been experiencing chronic head and neck pain, as well as scoliosis. A look inside his mouth confirmed what I thought -- he had a tongue tie. After several months of myofunctional therapy to strengthen his tongue, we scheduled his tongue-tie release surgery. Following a short period of recovery, we performed a second surgery to release his lower lip.  He did body work with Brian Burzinski and now is pain free and standing straight.  Check out his "before" and "after" pictures.

After Tongue and Lip Tie Surgery


This 55 year old autistic man was diagnosed with severe scoliosis prior to his tongue-tie release surgery.  The before picture was taken prior to the surgery.  The  after picture was taken an hour later when he returned home.
