Joint Vibration Analysis(JVA)
Before we carry out any dental treatments, we ensure there are no problems in your TMJ or Jaw joint. JVA is 90-95% accurate in diagnosing dysfunction in jaw joints.
Human joints have surfaces, which rub together in function.
Smooth, well-lubricated surfaces in a proper biomechanical relationship produce little friction and little vibration. However, surface changes such as those caused by degeneration, tears, or displacements of the disk, generally produce friction and vibration. Different disorders can produce different vibration patterns or “signatures”.
PC-assisted vibration analyses helps identify these patterns and helps to distinguish various TM disorders. Understanding your current TMJ function is crucial for appropriate treatment planning.
