The practice now offers advanced biometric testing, known as joint vibrational analysis (JVA), to help with a timely and accurate diagnosis of temporomandibular dysfunction (TMD). First-line treatments include non-invasive, reversible therapies that the practice reports have a 95% success rate, with phase-2 non-reversible options also available.

Millennium Smiles explains that the variety of symptoms associated with TMD can make the condition difficult to diagnose. Now offered to patients in McKinney, Plano, Little Elm, and surrounding suburbs, the recently expanded services are designed to identify and resolve symptoms at the earliest possible stage.
The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) reports that temporomandibular disorders affect up to 15% of US adults, while dentalcare.com suggests that at least one symptom is experienced by 33% of the population. Along with jaw pain, common symptoms include facial pain, headaches, earaches, upper back pain, difficulty chewing, and tingling fingers.
The JVA testing services offered by Millennium Smiles are designed as a rapid and non-invasive method to confirm if symptoms are being caused by TMD. The technology detects vibrations made during movement of a patient’s jaw, and tests can now be completed in 5 minutes or less.
Millennium Smiles explains that its advanced testing capability has several distinct benefits. Given the sometimes general nature of TMD symptoms, the practice now has a fast and reliable method of assessing whether they are being caused by the temporomandibular joint. This also allows dentists to determine the most suitable treatment.
