Dr Ely uses the most effective and latest treatment for TMJ/TMD patients, the BOC System, developed by Dr. Roberto Gutierrez and Dr. Mariano Rocabado, one of the most acclaimed experts in the fields of craniocervical, craniomandibular, and orofacial disorders.

The BOC system recognizes the direct relationship between the position of your head and your neck. Misalignment of the cervical vertebras plays an important role in aligning the jaw, or temporomandibular joint. An improperly aligned jaw can result in malocclusion, which causes the majority of signs and symptoms of TMJ disorder.
