Millennium Smiles seeks to offer a more accurate and effective means of diagnosing temporomandibular joint disorders, which can often have generalized symptoms. These include pain in the face and/or jaw, headaches, neck and upper back pain, ringing ears, dizziness, and/or tingling fingers.
When left untreated, temporomandibular joint dysfunction can lead to several more serious health concerns, such as chronic and worsening pain, inability to chew, sleep apnea, insomnia, and depression and/or anxiety.
As Millennium Smiles points out, TMD is traditionally difficult to diagnose, and the clinic’s recently expanded service aims to address this. The advanced JVA biometric equipment is designed to detect friction caused by a misaligned temporomandibular joint, helping dentists to understand if a problem exists, and what the precise causes are.
In cases where TMD has been identified, Millennium Smiles now uses a 12-16-week therapeutic approach that the clinic states will resolve symptoms for the majority of patients. Meanwhile, more difficult to treat problems can be addressed with phase-2, non-reversible treatments.
