JOINT VIBRATION ANALYSIS
At our office, we use a Joint Vibration Analysis (JVA) to evaluate the health and function of your TMJs or jaw joints. The JVA works by recording the vibrations created by joint fluid, cartilage, and bone as you open and close your mouth. This test takes only ten seconds of opening and closing your mouth to objectively measure and document the true health of your jaw joint. The JVA is useful to identify problems within the joint that can be responsible for the wear or pain of the joint. This test also allows us to pinpoint any underlying issues before moving on to the treatment phase, this way we can avoid any treatment that could damage ore strain your TMJs.
