What is TMD?

Temporomandibular joint disorders, or TMD, affect the jaw muscles, nerves, and joints. The exact cause of TMD is often difficult to determine, but some of the most common origins include arthritis, injury, and teeth grinding. Even genetics can play a part.

Symptoms you can experience include:

  • Jaw pain or tenderness
  • TMJ feels like it’s locking
  • Difficulty opening or closing your mouth

Sometimes a clicking sound is possible without experiencing any pain. In this case, treatment often isn’t necessary.

What is BioPAK?

If you believe you’re experiencing TMD symptoms, the dentist will use the BioPAK system to record a range of parameters, such as the muscles of mastication and function of the mandible, within the stomatognathic system. It is used alongside the BioJVA, which is a series of sensors that measure your facial movements through jaw joint vibrations.

Once the dentist receives the data provided by this biometric technology, they will be able to make more informed decisions for treatment. The system can also be used for restorative and orthodontic care.

What Are the Benefits of BioPAK?

  • Accurate data
  • Allows for treatment customized for you
  • Gives the dentist the ability to monitor results

Utilizing M-Scan

We use M-Scan to record your craniofacial muscle activity and use the findings to improve dental results by taking your unique physiology into account. Once the information is gathered, a technician will analyze the symmetry of the bilateral muscles.

M-Scan is also an important education tool for patients, allowing them to see results before, during, and after treatment.
