The three major components for optimal dental health are: Teeth, Muscles, and Jaw Joints. At our office we will test your optimal dental health components and create a baseline for you to have in your records. Your health and quality of life can be heavily affected if your dental health components are not in optimal condition.
How do we test your teeth.
In our office we use a computerized bite scan that allows us to make a movie of your bite. This movie also tells us if you bite is balance and how much force you are placing on each tooth at any given time. Computerized bite technology is essential in order to maintain health teeth, joints, and muscles.
How do we test your muscles.
In out office we test your face muscles to check for asymmetry and function. Our EMG or surface electromyography technology can tell us if you muscles are in balance and whether your muscle are relaxed or tense. If your muscle are not in balance and are not happy, your teeth and jaw joints will not be happy. The information provided with the EMG is invaluable in our treatment planning.
How do we test your jaw joints (TMJ)
In our office every dental cleaning will begin with a quick test of your jaw joints using our Joint Vibration Analysis technology. This technology allows us to quickly test the health and function of your jaw joints. Your jaw joint health is crucial to your long term oral health program.
