The clinic’s latest capabilities include joint vibrational analysis (JVA) technology, which is designed as a rapid and evidence-based method of assessing TMJ dysfunction. Noninvasive and reversible therapy is offered as a first-line treatment, which has been successful in 95% of cases. Patients whose condition is not fully resolved by this approach can also now opt for phase-2, non-reversible methods.

Millennium Smiles explains that TMJD can cause a variety of symptoms, making correct and timely diagnosis more difficult. With the latest update, the clinic’s goal is to increase diagnosis rates and prevent the development of more serious health problems.
While statistics can vary, a recent analysis published by the US National Library of Medicine states that TMJD affects more than 30% of the adult population. As a result, the study encourages dentists to be aware of its high prevalence and to adopt strategies for early diagnosis and management of the condition.
Staying abreast of the latest industry developments, Millennium Smiles has adopted some of the most up-to-date diagnostic tools to assist in early identification. The clinic’s joint vibrational analysis technology is designed to detect the friction caused by TMJ disorders. The testing process is non-invasive and can be completed in as little as 5 minutes.
To improve diagnosis rates, Millennium Smiles states that greater awareness is also required among the general public. To that end, the clinic points to a number of symptoms that may warrant further investigation. These include jaw and/or face pain, difficulty chewing, neck and/or upper back pain, ear ringing, headaches, and tingling fingers.
