As part of the update, the clinic has incorporated advanced biometric analysis equipment, known as joint vibrational analysis (JVA). The technology uses non-invasive and pain-free equipment to listen for signs of friction within the TMJ, allowing dentists to identify problems at the earliest possible stage.

Millennium Smiles also now uses a multi-stage approach to treatment of TMD, with the preferred option being non-invasive and reversible therapy that has a 95% success rate. For more difficult-to-treat conditions, the practice can recommend non-reversible phase-2 methods.
The temporomandibular joint is one of the most complex in the human body, and any problems can lead to a variety of symptoms. These include pain in the jaw and/or face, unexplained headaches, difficulty chewing, popping noises in the jaw, ringing ears, neck and upper back pain, and several other symptoms.
Given the range of symptoms, Millennium Smiles states that many people suffering from TMD may not be aware of their condition. The clinic’s latest diagnostic tools are designed to make it easier to investigate possible causes. Patients wear a headphone-like device, and analysis can now be completed in as little as 5 minutes.
“When the temporomandibular joint doesn’t function correctly, it can cause pain in several different forms, making it a challenge to treat,” a practice representative explained. “Our non-invasive TMJ treatment usually lasts 12-16 weeks and has a 95% success rate of addressing reported symptoms.”
