To help us provide better treatment for TMJ disorders, Dr. Farshid Ariz and our team use Joint Vibration Analysis (JVA). This advanced analytic tool helps us identify the precise type of TMJ disorder our patients suffer from, and allows us to develop a specific treatment plan, ultimately giving our patients better care and improved dental health. To learn more about JVA in West Los Angeles, California, and to schedule an appointment with our skilled periodontist, call Farshid Ariz D.M.D. today.
Human joints have surfaces that rub together, creating friction and vibration. Smooth surfaces in the correct biomechanical relationship produce very little friction and vibration. Surface changes, such as those caused by degeneration, tears, or displacements of the disk, produce more friction and vibration. Different disorders produce different vibration patterns. PC-assisted vibration analysis helps to identify these patterns and distinguish them from the various TMJ disorders.
BioJVA™ Joint Vibration Analysis is based on principles of motion and friction. It is a fast, non-invasive measurement of TMJ function to aid in your diagnosis. Understanding your TMJ function is vital for any treatment that changes the position of your jaw. Common treatments that do this include TMD treatments, orthodontics, prosthodontics, reconstruction, and sleep dentistry.
We invite you to contact our office today to learn about JVA and how it helps our periodontist care for you.
