Biometrics & the TMJ

(Bite, muscles and jaw joint)

Nearly a quarter of the population suffer at some time from the way their jaw joint (TMJ), jaw muscles and teeth all operate together. Common symptoms include:-
- headaches or migraines
- generalised face or jaw pain
- clicking or popping jaw joints
- clenching or tooth grinding
- shoulder and neck pain
Many of these sufferers are misdiagnosed with neuralgia, migraine, neuritis and even psychosomatic illness.

Fortunately, we have some advanced computerised equipment that allows us to accurately test your bite balance and your TMJ health

JVA - Joint Vibration Analysis

JVA is used to check the health of the TMJ (Jaw Joint). This involves wearing a "headset" over your TM Joint and opening and closing your mouth.

The computer records the vibrations coming from within your jaw joint.
By analysing these vibrations any pathology within your joint can be determined extremely accurately
