JVA - Joint Vibration Analysis
BioJVA™ Fast & Accurate
JVA provides a fast, non-invasive, and repeatable measurement of TMJ function to aid in the diagnosis of your TMJ function. Understanding TMJ function is vital anytime you are changing the vertical, lateral, or A/P position of the mandible. Common treatments that change mandibular position such as TMD treatment, Orthodontics, Prosthodontics, Reconstruction and Sleep Dentistry can all benefit from JVA testing.
How it works
Human joints have surfaces which rub together in function. Smooth, well lubricated surfaces in a proper biomechanical relationship produce little friction and little vibration. But surface changes, such as those caused by degeneration, tears, or displacements of the disk, generally produce friction and vibration. Different disorders can produce different vibration patterns or “signatures”. Computer-assisted vibration analysis helps identify these patterns and helps to distinguish among various TM disorders.
