Based on the principles of motion and friction, the Bio JVA™ is a diagnostic aid for TMD and TMJ pathology
Bio JVA™ in Dentistry
BioJVA for Joint Vibrational Analysis
BioJVA is a diagnostic aid used to measure how jaw joints are functioning. This is valuable information to gather before starting any case that repositions the mandible in order to ensure the best outcome.
BioJVA or Joint Vibrational Analysis is a quick, non-invasive method for objectively evaluating the Temporomandibular Joints. In less than five minutes, your team can perform a test that analyzes the stability and function of the Temporomandibular Joint and evaluate whether TMD is present and if treatment is in order.
Much like the way dentists evaluate the wear on the teeth, JVA gives the dentist insight into the health of the jaw joint. BioJVA Joint Vibrational Analysis is based on the simple principles of motion and friction. When smooth surfaces rub together, they create little friction and vibration. If these surfaces become rough, friction and vibration are created as the surfaces articulate.
The Bio JVA works by recording and displaying the measurement of movement as simple, digestible, data through the BioPAK™ software.
Jaw joint vibrations have been researched extensively with thousands of documented cases of various dysfunction. Joint vibration analysis helps clinicians identify disturbances with various types of dysfunction found on the Piper Scale of jaw joint dysfunction.
The unique solution BioJVA™ provides is it’s ability to quickly diagnose and treat TMD without causing pain.
There is a vast collection of research studies done on the measurement of the TMJ. We have compiled a cross-section of the latest research on JVA, view the bibliography by clicking here
