Ben Sutter DMD, FAGD
Dr. Sutter of Eugene, Oregon, uses cutting-edge technology to diagnose and treat problems related to jaw alignment. Because our office is the only one of its kind in the area, we’re happy to treat patients from Portland and from all over Oregon and beyond. Dr. Sutter’s main goal is relieving pain and providing restored overall health through balanced, functional oral health—a goal he accomplishes through his gentle touch and caring demeanor.
"As a highly trained general dentist in the diagnosis and treatment of TMJ, my practice is highly focused on treating the symptoms of TMD (temporomandibular joint dysfunction) -- migraine headaches, head and neck discomfort, and TMJ tension headaches. I have gained a very unique perspective into the field of TMD, headaches, migraines, whiplash related TMD. I have trained with experts in the TMD field from various disciplines in medicine and dentistry. I bring a unique, multidisciplinary approach using techniques and concepts from physicians, ear nose and throat doctors, neurologists, chiropractors, physical therapists, dentists, and natural health practitioners. Our office incorporates the knowledge of these specialties to help you find true relief from your TMJ symptoms, tension headaches, migraine headaches, and head and neck pain. Our therapy is non-surgical, and most of our patients have come to us after seeking pain relief elsewhere. I have patients that have seen every specialty of medicine and diversity of care giver available. It is not uncommon for patients to have been seeking relief from their symptoms for years, even decades."
