Jaw Joint Problems
The jaw joint links the lower jaw and the head; it has a robust disc that prevents these two surfaces from wearing out, plus a complex network of muscles and ligaments to operate and support the link. Objective diagnostics tests inform your treatment plans for JVA patients
BioRESEARCH is the first and only company to have perfected the FGM sensors into its jaw tracking system. The JT-3D’s all-new mounting system creates a quick and easy set up with proper weight distribution and a stable base with absolutely no contact with the patients face!
Dentistry and Osteopathy
Conditions affecting the mouth and teeth have a very direct effect on the rest of the body. A dental or jaw problem may be preventing you from getting the best results from your osteopath or chiropractor.
Joint Vibration Analysis
This is a system that records joint vibrations as they pass through the tissues, giving a view of the pressure waves; different jaw joint problems give different vibrations and allow us to understand what is happening in your joints.
At Granta Diagnostics sister company, Granta Dental, we include a JVA screening in every routine adult checkup. The objective information is included in our treatment recommendations, particularly to avoid unnecessary interventions.
Any discrepancy between the position of the bite and the alignment of the jaw joints appears to provoke an unconscious stimulus to the jaw and face muscles. Objective diagnosis and monitoring of bruxism is achieved using surface EMG measurements of the affected muscles.
